Ribbon murukku

This is a good tea time snack and can be munched on any time..It does not need much earlier preparation..It was prepared by my mom and packed while I went to hostel..Here is how I made it..



Rice flour - 2 cups
Besan/Gram flour - 1 cup
Chilli powder - 2 teaspoons
Butter - 3 spoons
Salt to taste
Oil for frying


Mix the rice flour,gram flour,chilli powder,salt and butter with a little water,one spoon at a time..Mix them thoroughly until you get a flexible lump of dough..It should not be too watery or too dry..

Using the murukku press squeeze the mixture directly into piping hot oil..After two minutes,flip it on to the other side..Once they turn golden brown remove them from the oil and drain them on paper towels..
They are ready to munch on..

  3. I have bought a murukku press sometime ago after but I still haven't used it. This post motivates me to do so!

  4. Thanks for your comments coco..
    this was the first time I used the murukku press too..It was really simple to use..Do try it for sure..

  5. mmm..muruku is my favourite snack !
    For a long time i was searching for the muruku press in Indian stores..but finally I found Maruti Kitchen Press, on this web site http://www.perfectpeninsula.com

    You need a right tool to make muruku. The job was done like a breeze, just with one hand ! It was so easy to press.
    When compared to the conventional tool made out of wood or aluminium - you need two hand and have to press very hard and it becomes very difficult to make when the oil is hot :(

    It also came with a Recipe book with lots of unique snack varieties ! For more info, go to http://www.perfectpeninsula.com/KitchenPress.html

    I hope this would be more useful link, for bloggers who are looking for to buy one !

  6. The murukku is mouth watering.
    where can i get a press as in the pic.

  7. @ Sakthi,
    The murrukku is available in Indian stores or utensil stores in India. You can also find them online.
