Before I go for sweet treats for Diwali let me finish of savory items.  This is another Variation of Moong crispies.  Its so easy and tastes so good too.  Here is VER I which I posted last year. Stay tuned to see delicious treat tomm.....


Ingredients :

Rice Flour - 2 cups
Cooked Moong dhal - 1/2 cup ( Pressure cook the dhal with little turmeric and water, then measure for 1/2 cup)
Besan - 1/2 cup
Urad Flour - 1/2 tbsp
Butter - 1 tbsp or Hot oil  - 2 tbsp
Salt - as required
Cummin seeds -  1 1/2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Water as required
Oil for frying
Use star hole in the Murukku press 

Method :

1. Take the flours in the big bowl, add all other ingredients including cooked and mashed moong dhal.
2. If your adding butter add it or add 2 tbsp of hot oil.
3. Add water and make like a chappathi dough.
4. Heat the oil in the deep vessel or deep frying pan.  The oil should be really really hot.
5. Now fill the dough in the murukku press and press into the hot oil.( This can be checked by adding little piece of dough, when it comes up immediately without settling down it means its ready).
6. Don't reduce the flame, it should maintain the same temperature.  You can notice more bubbles in the oil as soon as the dough is pressed.
7. When the bubbles are reduced , flip it over and once the bubbles  disappears or reduces.  Take it out and drain in the paper towel. Repeat with remaining dough.
8. Once it is cooled store in the air tight container.  


Note :

You can have this murukku with onion pickle or any of your fav pickle.
