  • SNACKS RECIPES :

    Rice flour - 4 cups, home made (refer 'tips' below)
    Roasted chickpeas powder - 1 cup (dalia, putnala pappu)
    Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
    Red chili powder - 1 tsp
    Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp, optional
    Butter - 3 tbsps, melted
    Salt - 1 tsp
    Oil for deep frying

    How to make SNACKS :

  • Heat 2 cups water and a tsp of salt in a stainless steel vessel. Bring to a boil and reduce flame. Slowly add the rice flour and mix to form a gooey paste. Place lid and keep aside to cool.
  • Once the rice flour paste cools, add roasted chickpeas powder, cumin seeds, red chili powder, asafoetida powder and melted butter. Mix well to make a smooth dough. If required add a little more rice flour to form a smooth dough. Alternately, if you feel that the dough needs some water to form a dough, sprinkle some warm water and mix to form a smooth dough. Ensure that the dough is not too soft or hard, It should be just right to come through the press to form murukkus.
  • Heat oil for deep frying in a heavy bottomed vessel. While the oil is heating prepare the murukkus for deep frying.
  • Place a single star shaped disc in the murukku press, grease the insides of the mold, fill the mold with some of the prepared dough and make concentric shaped murukkus on a wax paper/greased banana leaf or a greased plastic sheet. This helps to easily transfer them into the hot oil. Prepare 6 to 7 for each batch based on how large the vessel is for deep frying.
  • To test if the oil is hot enough for deep frying, drop a small ball of the dough into the oil. If it sinks to the bottom of the vessel with a sizzle and come right up. The temperature of the oil is right for deep frying.
  • Reduce flame to medium and place 5 to 6 of the prepared murukkus and deep fry to a golden brown shade. Do not deep fry on high flame.
  • Remove onto absorbent paper. Once cool, store in air tight container.
