MULLU MURUKKU

 

 

Murukku or mullu murukku is prepared during diwali and janmashtami festivals,but i just wanted an excuse to prepare as i wanted to try this very much.I was sceptical about the outcome but then it was Diwali and i had to make it.Many beginners find this rather tricky as the squeezing into perfect rounds is a great task.By practicing for long and with great efforts i could to certain extent make these cute roundels.

 

 

I made flour at home since i made only a small batch,but if you happen to have a flour mill nearby,better to have grounded there.I have also seen this murukku being prepared in wedding bakshanams as well.The crispiness of this mullu murukku is simply mindblowing.Now to the recipe.

Recipe Notes

Notes

  • You can make big sized murukkus too by directly squeezing them on to the hot oil instead of squeezing in the laddle.
  • Make the dough fresh and make them to ensure that they don’t get reddened.
  • Addition of butter always enhances the taste.
