Javvarisi/Sago/Sabudhana Murukku for Indian Cooking Challenge


This month Srivalli chose Javvarisi/Sago/Sabudhana Murukku for the Indian cooking challenge. I have never heard of this and the recipe itself sounded delicious. I have never had javvarisi in anything except for payasams. The result was a delicious crispy snack to accompany our evening chai. We liked the murukku and hoping to try it sometime again.

Here comes the recipe as given by Srivalli.

Ingredients

Rice Flour(Arisi Maavu) - 2 cups
Besan flour(Kadalai Maavu) - 1/2 cup
Fried gram flour(Pottukadalai maavu) - 1/2 cup
Sago(Javvarisi) - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Curd - 50 gms (1/4 cup)
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp or as per taste

Special Utensil
Murukku Achu
Directions
In the buttermilk, soak the sago for about two to three hours until it doubles in size and gets translucent. If the sago is not soaked for enough time, it might tend to burst while frying the murukkus.

In a bowl, mix all the flours together. Heat about 50 gms oil, mix it along with the flour salt and chilli powder. Slowly add the buttermilk soaked sago and knead to make a smooth dough.

In a heavy bottomed vessel, heat oil for deep frying. In the murukku achu, add enough quantity of dough. When the oil gets hot, slowly press the murukku using the achu and deep fry on both sides until it turns golden brown in color.

Cook on medium flame to ensure the muruku is cooked well.

Store in an airtight container.
