Aval Murukku Recipe / Instant Poha Chakli - Krishna Jayanthi Recipes

Aval Murukku
Aval Murukku is a very easy murukku recipe that you can make for this Krishna Jayanthi(Gokulashtami).Aval / Poha and Butter are Krishnas favorite and this recipe has both the ingredients.

Every time I think of a new recipe and check it with google I will be disappointed to learn that the idea/recipe is already there but yes this time I won over google as it did not show any exact match for my aval murukku.This is just my experiment and was not even sure whether it would turn out good, only after I tasted the first murukku I was convinced to post this recipe :) I made a very small batch and it was done the same day I made.Amma gave a thumbs up tasting the murukku yayy!! :)

  5. Fill the dough till 3.4th of the murukku press and start pressing..I usually press in 2 laddles and flip it in oil.Heat oil , check by adding a pinch of dough if it raises immediately with a shh sound then the oil is ready.

My Notes:

  • Aval(Poha) when powdered gives very less quantity so take a heaped 1/2 cup measure.
  • Don't add more butter than mentioned else the murukkus will break while pressing and you will not get continuous lines.
  • I used thick poha but you can use any variety of poha.
  • Amma always insists to add hot water for making the dough for easy pressing.I added normal water, as I used my screw murukku press I did not find any issues.
  • You can replace melted butter with hot oil too.
  • Measure butter in room temperature and then melt it.
  • I added very little red chilli powder to make it less spicy, you can alter according to your preference.
  • I used my small kadai and fried 2-3 at a time, always fry in batches.

  2. Mom always ask me to soak rice, grind the same into smooth thick batter and then make murukku. When I use rice flour(store bought/home made) it becomes very hard to press. What am I doing wrong?

    1. There are different ways we can make murukku, as this is easy for me I always use store bought rice flour, try using hot water to prepare the dough that way it becomes easier to press
