Magizhampoo Murukku Recipe

I am so in love with my pithalai murukku press that I got last year and am putting it to good use.The screw type press is very easy to use and requires no major pressure as in other murukku press I have.

My Notes:

  • Do not overcook, it should light golden and not browned.
  • Regulate flame and cook, do not cook in high flame.
  • I used my star press to get this shape.
  • I used 1/3 cup of moong dal to get 1/4 cup of moong dal flour, I had little extra which I used it for veggie curry.
  • I used store bought Idiyappam Flour.You can use homemade rice flour too.
  • You can add 1/4 tsp sesame / jeera for extra flavour.
  • I used my kutti kadai for frying as I made very small quantity.
  • If you are making in larger quantity keep the dough closed to avoid from drying.

    I am really feeling very inspiredby ur work.u are not taking any break for persona reasons this shows how dedicated you are.
    I have moong dal flour at home it's store bought not roasted one I guess.we used to make papad from this flour. Now can I roast this and use for murukku or not ? Does it effect texture or taste

    2. Sharmi,

    1. If butter is more then murukku may try to add the exact measurement

  5. Can you show me how to make papads. I love papads. But I don't know how to make this.plz make that recipe

  6. Very inspiring no doubt.I am your new follower.could u tell me the name of the murukku presser in English.where would I get it? In normal stationery?
