You do not have to prepare rice specially by soaking it, drying and then grinding it. Believe me, no elaborate procedures, just mix everything and make delicious and soft murukkus in a matter of few minutes.Today we will learn how to prepare Butter Murukku following this simple recipe.
|Murukku with a cup of hot chai|
Prep time - under 10 mins
Rice flour - 1 cup
Fried gram flour* - 1/2 cup
Melted ghee - 3 tsp
Hing/asafoetida - a generous pinch
Oil for deep frying
Grind fried gram or chutney kadalai to a fine powder and sieve it. Take 1/2 cup (flat) of this flour and keep it ready.
Sieve rice flour also.
Grease the murukku maker.
In a bowl, mix together rice flour, fried gram flour, melted ghee, salt needed and hing.
Sprinkle water and make a soft but stiff dough. (It should not be too soft nor too hard). Check for salt by tasting the dough.
Heat oil in a kadai, add a small bit of dough, if it raises to the surface immediately, then the oil is hot enough for frying the murukkus. You can reduce the flame to medium now.
Using a single star disc, squeeze murukkus as shown in the picture above either on a plastic sheet or on the back of a slotted ladle or on a small plate (seal the end of the murukku after squeezing) and then gently slide 2-3 murukkus into the hot oil. (see picture below)
Fry both sides until golden brown and remove from oil. Drain the excess oil on a paper towel.
Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the dough. Store it in an air tight container once it cools down.
This is a very easy murukku recipe which does not need any prior preparation. Do try it and give me your feedback.
Note - If you are an expert, you can squeeze murukku directly into the hot oil.
If you are preparing more than 1 cup, do not mix everything. Prepare dough in batches.
*Fried gram is know as Pottu kadalai in tamil, Varutha Kadala in Malayalam, Putanalu pappu in Telugu and Bhuna Chana in Hindi.
