ICC September : Murukku



Murukku is one of our favorite snacks and it's so addictive. I was so glad when it was chosen for Indian Cooking Challenge this month, a great excuse to make some. This was a great recipe, very similar to what I usually make.
I'm a day late in posting this, totally skipped my mind. So sorry for that...do try this recipe....

Ingredients:
4 cups raw rice
1 cup urad dal
approx 1/2 cup water or more

For the seasoning:
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp asafoetida/ hing
salt to taste
75 gms butter


Method:
Wash and drain the rice. Dry for 1/4 hour. Dry roast the urad dal till golden and allow to cool.
Grind the rice to a fine powder. Then grind the urad dal to a fine powder.
Mix together both the flours, salt, sesame seeds, cumin seeds and hing.
Add the butter and rub it in till it forms into a crumbled mixture.
Add water and form into a firm dough.
Heat oil to deep fry. Shape the murukku using the murukku maker on pieces of paper and deep fry on medium heat till light brown, turning a couple of times to ensure even browning on both sides.
Drain on paper towels and store in air tight containers for upto a week.

    Look at that snap. Perfect murkkus.Looks like those mom makes. Adipoli mole!
    And same pinch...........murkkus are one of my fav snack too.
    When I was in 5th grade,during the Diwali hols, I remember eating scant 30 murkus in one shot and had to be rushed to the hospital with a horrible tummy pain. But, one would think. that after that incident, I would never eat murkkus again. But NO,I still do :)
