Murukku

Murukku is believed to have originated from Tamilnadu.(source wiki)Murukku will sure be one of the treats people make during diwali in Tamilnadu and I couldn't remember one person who doesn't love this crunchy murukkus.

My husband is a great fan of murukkus and my MIL makes wonderful murukkus. She made this when we went to india last year.This is my entry for lakshmik's RCI event for April which happens to be Tamil cuisine.



Ingredients

Parboiled Rice- 4 cups
Urad dal- 1 cup
jeera- 1- 2 tsp
sesame seeds white- 2 tsp
salt to taste
Asafoetida- little
oil for deep frying
butter- 100 grams

Method





Soak the rice for 2 to 3 hours. Dryroast the urad dal until golden brown and grind it to a fine powder. sieve it and keep aside.

Grind the rice in the wetgrinder to a very fine paste by adding water little by little. Add salt and asafoetida to the batter at the final stage. U should be able to get a thick,fine paste ( much thicker than dosa batter) at the end. If u get a bit watery paste u can keep the paste closed in a clean muslin cloth so that the cloth will absorb the extra water. Grinding the rice and making murukku is a bit time consuming work, but you really get white and crispy murukkus by this method.
Add the urad dal powder, jeera, butter,sesame seeds to the rice batter and knead well. u will be able to get a dough like consistency.
Heat oil in a pan and put the required amt of dough in the murukku maker with one hole disc or 3 hole disc. squeeze into the hot oil directly. U can make the murukku in a plastic sheet too and then add to the hot oil too.Turn it and cook the other side too.


Note

My MIL grinds the rice in a wet grinder. But I make this with rice and urad flour. Making murukkus with the flours is very easy than the grinder made one.The measurements are just the same . Slightly dry roast the urad flour for just one minute in a pan. the flour should just be warm after roasting. Add the other ingredients and water to make it into a dough. U get good murrukkus by this method too.
Check out Radhi's , Maheshwari's, Priya's ,Jyothsna's. Murukku too.

Prema thanks for visiting by blog!
Wow your murukka has a lovely color. and looks very crispy!

Mageswari said...

Hi Prema,
Whenever I try, some murukkus are not crispy.. not sure what mistake I am doing. I dry roast urad dal powder and rice flour seperately for more than a minute. Could that be the reason ?
