Quick, super addictive and perfect snack to have while sipping a cup of hot chai.
I made this last year and saved in drafts. 🙂 Now posting it.
It is very easy to prepare and perfect for teatime snack. It is spicy and crunch and made with simple ingredients, just mix all ingredients, press it using murukku press and fry it. I have tried cashews many a times but I used almonds last time which tasted equally good and I felt its far more healthy.
A crispy, crunchy, mouth melting murukku made with rice flour and spices. I usually make a lot of murrukus during diwali but these butter murukkus are something that I would make usually for home snacks :). Instead of buying store bought chips, I highly recommend these. I already have a murukku press, but it was not that good and one of my friend gave me new one last week I was so eager to make it with that
Vegan note: Use vegan butter if vegan .
You can store them for 2-3 weeks in an air tight container and enjoy 🙂
