Butter Murukku

My entries for Santhi’s JFI-Flour andRevathi’s FMR-Comfort Foods

Ingredients:
Plain rice flour-3cups
Roasted gram flour-1/2cup
(pottu kadalae/Puttanalu pappu grinded into fine powder)
Fresh white butter-11/2tbsp
Salt-11/2tsp
Oil for deep-frying
Method: 1) Mix rice flour, roasted gram flour together & sieve.
2) Mix salt butter to the flour & mix well.
3) Divide the flour into 2or 3 parts equally.
4) Sprinkle water to one part & prepare thick dough.
5) Using a single star disc in a greased murukku maker squeeze murukkus directly in hot oil.
6) Fry till golden in color & crisp. Remove from oil, drain excess oil.
Store in air-tight container.



Note: Murukkus retain its color only when it is mixed with water just before frying. If all the dough is mixed at a time, Murukkus of later portions of dough will become red when it is fried.

Radhika said...

Dear Radhika,

Every week I post a link to seven recipes that I've found on other blogs that I think are interesting or unique. I call it Recipe Carousel because the idea is to spread good recipes around and around and around . . .

This week's theme is "crispy snacks" and I have included a photo of and link to your recipe for butter murukku
http://morselsandmusings.blogspot.com/2006/09/recipe-carousel-14-crispy-snacks_18.html

I hope this is OK with you, but if it's a problem please let me know.

All the best,
Anna

HI Archana,

I got confused with your reply for Radhi, you said its putnala pappu, and you mentioned in the ingredients list its roasted gram flour. Now my question Is it roasted gram flour(Shenaga pindi roasted on the stove)? or putnalapappu roasted and grinded?
please clarify my doubt, i wanted to try this recipe for Diwali

Thanks,
Prathibha

Radhika said...

i've used puttnalu pappu powder ie.,just grinding puttanalu pappu into fine powder & then measuring it.u don't have to roast it.
