Though not much of a crunch lover myself, I do love Ari Murukku especially the ones my amma makes. They are so crisp and tender that its absolutely impossible to stop with just one.
I had always wanted to make some of these at home, but had been postponing it for a long time now, until my eyes fell on these lovely pictures of murukku on the wonderful blog Tasty Appetite by Jay and then there was no turning back.
Though I had always wanted to try my mom's recipe, I decided to go ahead with this one instead

Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
Rice powder - 2 cups

Urid dal/black gram powder - 2 tbsp (dry roast urid dal till golden brown, let cool and grind in a coffee grinder or mixer till you get fine powder)

Ajwain/Cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp

Butter - 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Water

Oil to fry

Preparation

  • Tip in the powders, Ajwain, asafoetida and butter into a bowl and mix well.

    Now pour enough water, little by little till you get a soft, pliable and smooth dough.
    Leave this for 5 -10 mins.
    Heat oil.

    Grease you murukku mould and load it with the dough.
    Using the mould, press out the murukku into the hot oil and fry till the murukku turns golden brown and crisp.
