  4. Take your murukku mould and fit in the star shaped disc.I used my single star shaped disc, you can use multi star press too.Grease the murukku press with little oil and fill it up with the  dough.Now slowly press directly into oil or on a laddle like I did.

  5. 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.Flip the laddle to transfer the murukku into the oil and fry till golden brown.Drain in a tissue paper.

My Notes:

  • You can either use homemade rice flour or readymade idiyappam flour.You dont need to roast the idiyappam flour for this murukku.I used Nirampara brand idiyappam flour.
  • Sieving both the flours is optional but I recommend doing it as it ensure even mixing.
  • You can replace jeera with sesame seeds.
  • If you prefer spicy murukku then use 1/2 tsp red chilli powder.Or grind 3 pearls garlic with 2 red chillies for flavoured murukku.
  • You can even use thenkuzhal press for this murukku.You can make concentric circles or make irregular shapes like how I did. I made concentric circles for mullu murukku so wanted to try like this for puttukadali murukku just to show variation in the pics :)
  • Adding more butter will make the murukku crumble and you will not get continuosu swirls while pressing it will break in between.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.

  25. Why are my murukkus soft inside and crispy outside?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think if its undercooked then it will have a soft inside....or if you have cooked it in little high flame the outside gets cooked and will turn crispy while the inside remains soft
