Kai Murukku is one of the most famous South Indian jar snacks, and is like an endorsement of one’s cooking skills! Made with a dough of rice and urad, this chakli like snack is shaped entirely by hand, which requires a bit of practice to master.
However, it is completely worth the effort because this tasty snack is almost addictive. So yummy yet homely, it can be had at any time of the day.
It is often made during festivals like Janmashtami and Diwali , and tastes amazing with a cup of hot coffee.
Just make sure you fry the Kai Murukku patiently till the oil stops bubbling because this is made with a wet flour and will not get the required crispness if it is not completely cooked.
You can also try other South Indian jar snacks like Ribbon Sev or Seedai .
