according to me….Hmmm….my mouth is watering….
- 2 Cups Rice flour, sifted
- ½ cup Urad dal flour, sifted
- ½ tbsp. Ajwain/Carom seeds
- 1 tbsp. Red chili powder
- 3 tbsp. hot Ghee/Butter/Oil
- Oil for deep frying
- Water for kneading
- In a bowl mix rice flour, urad dal, ajwain, red chili powder, salt and hot ghee. Now slowly add water little by little and make stiff dough (the dough should be just soft enough to pass through the murukupresser).
- Heat enough oil in a kadai or in a wide and thick bottom vessel for deep frying muruku. Now take muruku maker/presser and use the star holed attachment/disc. Grease it with little oil and fill half with the above
- Line a parchment paper or butter paper or wide slotted ladle or aluminium foil or plastic sheet or zip lock bag with oil brushed upon on clean kitchen counter and by using the muruku maker/presser slowly start to press and rotate the maker to make the dough come out of the star holed disc on the parchment paper.
- Slowly start to rotate muruku maker/presser in circular directions, until you make a medium bangle sized circle. Gently but carefully flip this into the hot oil.
- When the muruku starts to change color, flip again using a slotted ladle and fry till light golden. Make sure to cook evenly. Drain on kitchen tissue and leave it to cool.
- Repeat the process until you finish off the dough.
- Once cooled you can store in an air tight container and relax as you have made a snack that can be munched anytime and can be stored for a week.
- Use your choice of muruku attachment/disc for different shapes….I has used one with big holes one for the ones you see in the pictures.
- Last but not least add your ‘love’ to make the dish ‘YUMMY’.
- You can dry roast white sesame seeds and add to the dough.
- You can even add Gram flour (Besan) instead of Urad dal.
- You can add cumin seeds instead of Ajwain.
After the use of muruku maker drop it in bowl filled with soap water for ½ hour. This will help in losing the dough from the maker easily and using an unused tooth brush you can easily clean the murulu maker. Wipe dry and store in a clean place or wrapped in a plastic cover.
