Easy and Simple Butter Murukku Recipe
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.
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.
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.
