About Instant Murukku Recipe Recipe

These pottukadalai murrukku or fried gram crispy murukku are very easy to prepare and my mom’s recipe. We can use the ready store bought rice flour to make this snack. Adding butter (in some household, even now dalda or vanaspathi is added instead of butter) is very important to this recipe, butter makes the murukku crispy and helps it to stay crispy for long.

Instant Murukku Recipe

Ingredients to make Instant Murukku Recipe

  • Rice flour – 1 cup (I used idiyappam flour)
  • Fried grams – 2 tbsp
  • cumin seeds – 2 tsp
  • White til seeds – 2 tsp
  • salt – 1-2 tsp
  • butter – 3 tbsp (melted)
  • Hot water – Few tablespoons (I used 1/2 cup)

How to make Instant Murukku Recipe

  1. Add fried grams to a blender and blend it into fine powder.
  2. Sieve rice flour 2-3 times.Next sieve powdered fried gram flour to rice flour.
  3. Add cumin seeds, til, salt and butter and using your finger tips mix well, until it forms crumbs like texture.
  4. Now add hot water little by little and mix well. Do not add too much water at a once, we will add 1-2 tbspns at time and mix well, and if required add few more tbspns and mix.
  5. Continue this until you formed a smooth dough. Keep the dough covered and away from stove, else the dough will turn too dry and you won’t be able to press the murukku.
  6. Heat oil in a wide pan. While oil is heating, fill the press with murukku mix. I used single hole star in the murukku press.
  7. Squeeze out the murukku over a greased ladle and drop them gently into the hot oil. (or you can also directly press into oil)
  8. Once you drop the murukku, turn flame to medium. Wait until the murukku release the ladle by itself.
  9. if you find that murukku is not leaving the spotted ladle, you can gently push the murukku using another ladle after it’s cooked on one side, mine released by itself
  10. Fry them in oil until golden brown on both side. You will notice that the bubbles in the oil is reduced and the sizzle sound stops, that indicates murukku is down. Remove from oil and place it on kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
  11. Murukku/Mullu murukku is done. Once they cool down, store it in air tight container. 10. Make these for Diwali, ENJOY
