Butter Murukku:

Today,  I’m glad to share with you the soft and tasty butter murukku recipe   ( as I have mentioned in my Father’s day post ) . 

Butter Murukku is one of the popular South Indian delicacy and is made for festivals like Diwali, Krishna Jayanthy, Pongal, Holi, Ugadi, Vishu, etc., This is very easy to prepare and one of the  kids favorite snack. It can be savoured in all times and my favorite is with my hot cuppa coffee..

Enjoy this crispy and homemade butter murukku.. !
