Hope everyone had wonderful weekend. We had really rainy and very cold weekend. Since I am not ok with my health I did not do much in kitchen. So in the mean time I thought of posting this murukku recipe which was lying in my draft for so long time. Hope you will enjoy this...

Ingredients :

Raw rice - 5 cups
Moong dhal -2 1/2 cup
Roasted gram dhal - 2 1/2 cup
Chilli powder - 2 tbsp ( or adjust to your taste)
Butter - 4 tbsp
Salt as required

Method :

1. Roast the Moong dhal till the nice aroma comes.
2. Powder the rice and 2 dhal in the mixer. Sieve it and powder it until everything is done.
3. Add the chilli powder, salt and butter.
4. Divide the powder into 2 equal parts for first part add the water slowly and make softer dough.
5.Put the dough murukku maker press directly over the oil cook over the medium flame, turn over other side till slightly color changes. Drain to the tissue paper. And store in the Air tight container. Continue this until the dough is done.


1. Actually making powder in a mixer is really tough job.
2. So If your coming from India or if your in India you can send to the mill for making powder and use whenever you need it.
3. Since I did it in mixer it took long time and slightly the texture changed but the taste was same and totally good . All my friends really enjoyed it.
