Our Indian cuisine abounds with varieties of jar snacks , which add sparkle to a cup of tea or coffee!
One such gem from the South Indian repertoire is Butter Murukku, a melt-in-the-mouth savoury snack made with a dough of rice flour, urad flour and besan. A dash of whole spices like cumin and sesame contribute to the aroma and flavour of the murukku, increasing its irresistibility quotient.
When pressing the murukku through a chakli maker, make sure you press it directly into the oil. Also, ensure that you fry small batches at a time without over-crowding the oil, which tends to make the dough clump together.
You can also try other recipes like Bajra Chakli and Nutritious Chaklis .
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
- Take a portion of the dough and press it into a greased chakli “press” and cover it with the lid.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, press holding the chakli maker directly on top of the oil and let the murruku directly fall in the hot oil.
- Do not over crowd the deep non-stick pan with a lot of murruku and deep-fry them on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Cool and serve or store in an air-tight container.
