Magizhampoo Murukku is a traditional murukku recipe which uses dal flour and coconut milk for extra flavour.It is also called as Mullu Murukku or Magilampoo Thenkuzhal.This murukku gets its name as it resembles a flower named ‘Magizhampoo’. The coconut milk flavour is a great twist to this murukku and lifts the flavour too.This comes out nice crispy and crunhy perfect to mucnh anytime of the day,So do give a try for this Diwali 2015!
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.
