Ingredients
  • Ragi flour (Finger Millet) – 1 cup
  • Oats flour – ½ cup
  • Rice flour – ½ cup
  • Split roasted gram/ Potukkadalai flour – ¼ cup
  • Sesame seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Vegetable oil – for frying
Instructions
  1. Heat oil for deep-frying in a pan.
  2. In a wide bowl, add all the ingredients except oil. Add water little by little to form soft stiff dough.
  3. Fix the murukku achu (mould) into the murukku press. Add a portion of dough in the murukku press and close it. Press it and make a circular shape. I always grease some laddles and make murukku first in that then drop them in oil. This will help to make nice shaped ones.
  4. When the oil is hot, in medium high heat, drop the shaped murukku. Do not crowd the pan, it will make the oil temperature go down.
  5. When it turns into crispy golden brown color on one side and also when bubbles ceases, flip this carefully using the ladle to other side and cook till the bubble ceases. Drain it in tissue paper, cool down completely and store in airtight container.
Notes
1. Make sure you fry them in hot oil. If you make it in low flame, the murukkus will drink up lot of oil.
2. Always grease some laddles and make murukku first in that then drop them in oil. This will help to make nice shaped ones.
3. If you don’t have oats flour, just blend some oats in blender.
4. If you don’t have split roasted gram flour, just blend roast from gram and blend it finely.
