How to make Muruku/Murukulu/Murukku
My Tip:OIL TEST: Check whether the oil is hot enough for frying out muruku by dropping a small ball of above kneaded dough in the oil. When the dough raises to the top of the oil at once with the bubbles all around then the oil is completely ready for frying out muruku. BE CAREFUL: Its fun to make these savories at home…but always be careful, as the oil is hot, keep the children away from the kitchen. Wear short sleeves and mostly cotton clothes while deep frying anything.
