Butter Muruku

This is one of my favorite snack. For the first time I am trying this at home and the result is very good. Muruku are crunchy and tasty and with same dough I prepared some jantikalu and they too tasted divine.Use of roasted  chana dal powder has given very good smell and taste to these murukus.

Roasted chana da(Putnala pappu):3/4 cup
Rice flour-3cups
Sesame seeds-2tbsp
Cumin seeds-1tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder-2tsp
Oil for frying


  1. Grind roasted chana dal to a fine powder.
  2. Mix rice flour and chana dal powder and to this add butter. Mix well till the mixture gives crumble appearence.
  3. Now add all the remaining ingredients and water and form a nice dough.(The dough should be softer than roti dough).Cover it with wet cloth to prevent from drying.
  4. Using the muruku mould (singe star attachment) fill the muruku press with dough.
  5. Take an aluminium foil or plastic sheet, start rotating muruku press for forming medium sized spirals on to aluminium foil.In this way make nearly 8-10 spirals or murukus.
  6. Heat oil in a wide bottomed pan and when the oil is hot slide these murukus into oil gently(Be careful not to splash oil.As soon as you slide murukus in hot oil bubbles will froth up and will start to disappear once the muruku turns golden brown.So heat oil properly and always fry on medium heat).
  7. Fry them till they reach light golden brown and remove them to an absorbent paper.Repeat the same process with the remaining dough.
  8. Cool them completely before storing in an air tight container.

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
