How to Make Murukku

  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Adding water little by little, form a stiff dough.
  • Two ways to make murukkus using the murukku maker:
  • Using 1 star attachment:
  • Take the 1 star attachment and fix it to the maker.
  • Lay a damp cloth or plastic sheet lightly brushed with oil/butter on the counter.
  • Take a small amount of dough and place it inside the maker.
  • Press the dough on to the plastic sheet/cloth.
  • Slightly rotate the maker until you make a circle.
  • You can make as many spirals as you please.
  • Remove the piped murukku from the plastic to your hands and then drop it into the hot oil.
  • Using 3 star attachment:
  • Repeat the same process as mentioned for 1 star - but you won't get spirals to form a circle.
  • Make sure you spread it wide on the plastic and drop it in the oil.
  • Press it until a sufficient amount has dropped into the oil and break off the rest of the dough.
  • Drain them on paper towels.
  • Let them cool and store in air tight containers.
