Author: Category: Snacks Cuisine: South Indian
Prep Time: Cook Time: Total Time:

  • 1 tbsp - Softened Butter
  • 1/8 tsp - Asafoetida/Hing
  • 1 tsp - Cumin Seeds/Sesame Seeds
  • To Taste - Salt
  • As Need - Water (I used 1/2 cup+ 1tps)
  • To Deep Fry - Oil

  3. Rub well with hands to combine everything well. Add water in small quantity to make little tight (not very), smooth, non sticky dough without any cracks knead the dough well for that, keep the dough covered always. Take murukku machine or press and use star hole disc/plate.
  4. Butter-Murukku-Recipe
  5. Fill the murukku press with dough (for 1 cup I was had to fill only once) and heat oil for frying in a kadai/wok. You can directly press murukku on hot oil, if you knead the dough well smooth yet little tight the murukku will break by itself while we squeeze or grease 2-3 ladles and press on them first, gently drop the murukku in hot oil, don't over crowd the kadai, it will take longer time to cook and they will break in small pieces when you stir.
  6. Cook in medium flame once bubbles reduces turn and cook another side until bubbles ceases. Drain murukku in kitchen tissues, repeat same for rest of dough.
  7. Butter-Murukku-Recipe

After cooling completely store in airtight container, stays good for 3-4 weeks.

  • Make smooth dough while still little tight, knead well so there are no cracks.
  • You can replace cumin seeds with sesame seeds.
  • Cook in medium flame, if the oil temperatures drops, they will be oil drunken murukku.
  • Don't over crowd while squeezing it will result in pieces getting break into smaller size.
  • If you have 3 star murukku mold/disc then you can use that for faster process, I don't have that :(
  • Water quantity depends on quality of flour so you may or may not need 1/2 cup water, it's better to add water in slowly to avoid adding extra water.

Easy, crunchy yet soft and addictive murukku, enjoy with tea or coffee.
