Butter Murukku Recipe - Easy Butter Murukku | Gokulashtami Recipes

Butter Murukku Recipe
Butter Murukku is a traditional Indian snack made during festivals especially for Krishna Jayanthi. As the festival is nearing I wanted to post this easy murukku recipe. I wanted to make butter murukku the way it looked in shops so made it in pieces,but if you prefer you can make it in swirls just like I made mullu murukku.

Check other muruku recipes here :
1.Thenkuzhal murukku
2.Pottukadalai Murukku
3.Maida Mullu Murukku

Before moving to butter murukku recipe, I wanted to share my experience...Butter murukku will remain very special in my culinary experience ;) Here is what happened : After the success with the butter murukku I had a amla sized remaining dough..as it was very little to press I patted them like thattais and deep fried it. I was waiting to finish the dough as I was very tired...with a final pinch of dough the cashewnut me ;) made them into balls and dropped it into oil...when I dropped the 3rd ball it blasted....OMG only now I know why people say seedai bursts....:O Having known that moisture in the dough shaped as balls will make them explode and having made seedai thrice with no disasters it didnt strike me at that instant causing burns on my wrist and few spots on my face too......Thank god nothing serious I am ok now. I sat down for a while then proceeded with the clicks though finished the photo session soon.But lessons learnt : dont ever be hasty while cooking especially when handling with oil. Now lets move on to butter murukku recipe....

Butter Murukku Recipe

Preparation Time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 35 mins | Makes: 2 cups

*Note : You can use store bought rice flour(idiyappam flour) to make this.Roast it for 2mins then use it.

  4. Heat oil - drop a small pinch of dough to check if the oil temperature is right...when the dough immediately raises to the top with a sizzle then your oil is ready.Now carefully press directly into oil, press in such a way they dont stick to each other, so don't overcrowd.Fry till golden brown and drain in a tissue paper.How to make butter murukku - Step4
Cool down in an store in an airtight container.
Easy Butter Murukku Recipe

My Notes:

  • After your dough is prepared keep it covered to avoid it from drying.
  • Just use only 3 tsp of gram flour and not the entire flour we have powdered.
  • The murukku is soft with a melt in the mouth texture.
  • When you press and if its too tight to press then your dough is very tight in consistency so drizzle little water and knead to get the desired consistency. And when you press if you dont get a long continuous line and if it tends to break then butter is more so dont panic - just little rice flour, water and knead it again.
  • I added white sesame seeds, you can even use black sesame seeds.

    1. If its a genuine one I am sure publishing it....there is sure diff between bad and harsh comments....There is lot of hard work put in right from cooking, arranging, composing a shot and finally editing before I present it here....you can understand the pain only when its felt.
