  22. hi jay, oooo i love murukku- always buy ready made from the shop. i can eat this everyday ha ha
    over here they do sell ready mix murukku flour, never tried though cos i think the pressing part right into the pan needs a lot of skill ..you are the expert :)
    one day, i will try this out, may be early next year, when i am more at home.

  57. These look delicious, and I think I would have them with a glass of wine rather than a cup of tea! I am interested to what gar am flour is made from, I have to be careful with what I eat and can't eat too much wheat.
    I love the way you have laid the photos out, so that just by glancing at them I would feel confident in making the recipe, really clear.
