Pottukadalai Murukku 

This murukku is very delicious and is made of rice flour and roasted gram (pottukadalai). I have used store bought regular rice flour to make this murukku.


Thenkuzhal is my favorite murukku prepared with homemade rice flour and urad dal flour and flavored with either cumin seeds or sesame seeds.

Butter Murukku 

Easy to make and just melts in your mouth.

Puzhungal Arisi Murukku

This is a very delicious and spicy murukku prepared with par boiled rice (puzhungal arisi), roasted gram flour (pottukadalai) and chillies. Those who do not have access to flour mill can make this delicious murukku prepared using wet grinder. Very Addictive.

Ribbon Murukku-Ribbon Pakoda (2 Recipes- wet grinder method and instant version )

This murukku is also made by grinding rice but uses bengal gram flour (kadalai mavu) instead of roasted gram flour. I have added garlic and red chillies to make it spicy. You can omit garlic when making for festivals. You also have an instant version of ribbon murukku (without garlic) recipe.


Prepared with bengal gram flour (kadalai mavu) and flavored with bishop weeds (omam in Tamil and ajwain in Hindi).

Mullu Murukku

This is traditional mullu murukku prepared with homemade rice flour and dal.

As the name suggests, it is spicy. Love it with a cup of ginger cardamom tea.
