1.Rice(pachcharisi)....5 cups

2.Urad dhal .........1 cup(fry dryly till golden color)

3.Butter........5 tbsps(or its upto u)

4.Cumin seeds............3 tbsps

6.Water as u need.


1.Grind rice and fried urad dhal in food processor or flour mill(it should be in fine powder state).

2.Divide flour in to small parts and mix the other ingredients according to the measure.

Note:Making that big amount of flour in one session isn't easy.And if the wet flour is kept for long time,the murukku will turn red and start to absorb more oil as well.

3.Put the wet flour mixture in murukku press in hot oil and fry till the bubbles settle.Take out from hot oil and let it cool down and store them immediately in an air tight container.

For detailed procedure,see mullu murukku recipe.Thanks n Hope u all like tis :-)
