Crispy Crunchy Murukku :
Murukku  is a scrumptious South Indian snack prepared during special occasions & festivals. This  is an absolute kids favorite,  owing to its taste & portability. 
This recipe is quite easy to do and very little chance of getting it wrong. I love to prepare this often as it as comes in handy to serve with tea, to pack in children’s lunches and offer to guests.

Enjoy this delicious recipe of crispy , crunchy & flavorful murukkus ..:)

  22. Yes as kids we love them very much but not now as its very challenging for the teeth, its either we break the murukku or be broken by the murukku. My dentist disallow me to eat any more fried ground nuts which faces the same challenge as biting the murukku. Our murukku in Malaysia is slightly harder.

  58. Hi,
    your murku pics have inspired me to try this recipe. I was reading your recipe step by step. Just wanted to double check, do u add butter at the end after adding water or do you add butter and then later knead with required water? Can't wait to try these.
    Thanks a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks for liking rg. You have to add the butter first and mix well. Then sprinkle water little by little as required to make soft smooth dough. Give it a shot & enjoy crispy crunchy murukkus.

  60. Hi Jay,
    Thanks for this recipe and your quick reply.
    I tried it today. One batch came our crispy while the other batch with the same dough was a little hard. What could be the reason?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hy Rg,
    May be the second batch could have gone dried up and lost its surface moisture. This can be avoided by keeping the dough covered with a damp cloth and if needed you can sprinkle few drops of water to the second batch of dough and giv a quick knead before making murukku.

  62. In this recipe, I used raw rice flour.
