My Notes:

  • You can even add equal ratios of rice flour and besan flour.
  • You can skip pepper powder and add only red chilli powder.
  • The dough shouldn't be very tight so add water accordingly.
  • I added 3 big cloves of garlic.
  • I used my murukku press mould.
  • You can replace oil with butter too.
  • Cooking soda is added to give a slightly soft texture.
