  6. Heat oil for frying in a kadai/wok. To check oil temperatures drop small ball of dough in oil, if it rises immediately on top then the temperatures is correct. Gently drop 2-3 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.
  7. 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. (color difference you see in picture of murukku is due to lighting, it's the same stuff :)

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 soak 4-5 dry red chili in water along with garlic and grind both to smooth paste, instead of using red chili powder and garlic paste separately.
  • Sieve all the flours to avoid any lumps.
  • 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.
