  • First we need to treat mould, but this is mainly for iron / aluminium.If its nonstick then you can use it as such.I first washed it well, soaked in rice cooked starch water overnight.Then immersed in heated oil for 5 mins,switched off  and left it in that oil overnight.Now the mould is ready.
  • Extract coconut milk , measure and keep aside.
  • To a mixing bowl - add maida,rice flour and powdered sugar.
  • Add salt and sesame seeds.Mix well.Get ready with coconut milk and the mould.
  • Add the coconut milk and mix well. It should form a slightly thin batter.If the batter is thick then add little water.Set aside.
  • Now heat oil, dip the mould in it till its heated atleast for 15 seconds.Then immediately dip the mould in the batter so that 3/4th of mould is immersed in the batter.The batter will stick to the mould.
  • Now carefully dip the mould in preheated oil. Leave for few seconds.Make sure to dip the mould in preheated oil each time before dipping in the batter.
  • Then shake the mould for the murukku to release from mould.If it doesn't come out use a fork to pull it out.Fry till golden.Repeat until you finish the entire batter.
  • Turn over and cook till golden on both the sides.Remove,drain in tissue paper.Cool down then store.


  • If the batter does not stick to the mould either the mould is not hot or the batter is too runny.
  • The batter should not be too runny or too thick.If its too thick,
    the murukku will become hard.If its too runny then the batter wil not stick to the mould.
  • Make sure you immerse the mould only till 3/4th
  • For me first 2 murukkus didnt release easily I had to use fork but after that it came out very easily after few shakes
  • The original recipe called for 1/2 cup powdered sugar but I used only 1/4 cup as we wanted only mild sweetness
