Potato Murukku | Aloo Murukku Recipe | Easy Diwali Snacks Recipes

Potato Murukku, Aloo Murukku, Aloo Murukulu (Janthikalu) or chakli is easy murukku recipe, good for beginners as this is very easy with minimal ingredients. I like murukku with different flavors and this is one of the favourite too and makes good snack for Diwali or even for tea time, in my home this whole batch was over in just 2 days along with the Ratlami Sev so it's good. If you look to try something different than this is for sure good option specially during this festive season.

While making this potato murukku I first used 3 star disc (as I used in the pepper murukku) and after the 1st batch of dough finished I changed the disc with multiple holes, you can used 3 hole or star hole murukku disk too it's upto you, but if you want to have like this white (or shall we say cream) looking murukku then you have to fry it in medium to slow flame, if you keep the flame in high they will start to get golden brown, happened with me for first few batches.


Murukku or chakli are always wonderful snacks for festivals like diwali, holi or just any day of course most of us make these goodies only during festival, so try something new and different apart from kara sev, this is one of my another favorite, you can also check the other murukku recipes I posted so far like

  3. Add water in small quantity to make soft, smooth, non sticky dough without any cracks, keep the dough covered always. Take murukku machine or press and use 3 hole or star hole disc/plate, I used the one with as below, fill the press and heat oil for frying in a kadai/wok.

  5. You can directly press murukku on hot oil or grease 2-3 laddles and press on them first, gently drop the murukku in hot oil, 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. If you wish to have white color looking murukku then you have to fry in medium to slow flame, if you increase flame they will turn to golden brown.
  6. Potato-Murukku-Recipe
After cooling completely store in airtight container, stays good for 3-4 weeks.

  • Make soft and smooth dough, knead so there are no cracks.
  • You can replace cumin seeds with carom seeds (ajwain/onam).
  • You can also add 1 tsp of red chili powder.
  • Make 2-3 layers while making murruku, don't add too many layers.
  • If not looking for vegan version, then add butter with rice flour instead of using oil hot. Butter will make the murukku softer.

Easy, potato flavor murukku, enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee :)
