How to prepare this easy and simple murukku
First let me tell you about the murukku maker.The murukku maker comes with 2 moulds and different plates. I have used the 3 star plate to make this murukku. (See pic below)
Take a small amount of dough and put it inside the murukku maker, then press it with the other mould (you have 2 moulds) and you will find dough coming out of the 3 star shaped holes.
Move it in a circular motion to make murukku as shown in the picture on the back side of a small plate or the back of a flat ladle.Grease the back of the small plate or flat ladle with little oil and then press on it. We are doing this as the murukku will easily slip into the hot oil when you turn the plate or ladle. I greased it only once to make all the murukkus.
Heat oil in a kadai and when it is hot, drop the murukku inside the oil gently. It starts bubbling with a sound.( Picture 2) Let it get cooked. After sometime, flip it over to the other side (Pic -3) and fry until it becomes golden brown.
Once golden brown, remove murukku from the oil using a slotted ladle and drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil. You can fry 3-4 murukkus at a time depending on the quantity of oil used. Delicious Murukku is ready. (pic4)
Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
Store the murukkus in an air tight container. It has a self life of 10-12 days. Enjoy making this yummy and simple murukku this Diwali.
Wishing you all a Bright Diwali - Sparkling with success and glowing with warmth!!
