Murukku / Chakli


Rice flour - 4 cups
Urad flour- 1/2 cup
Roasted split gram powder- 3/4 cup
(pottu kadalai)
Hing - 1/4 tspn
Ajwain - 1 tspn
Cumin -1 tspn
Chilli powder - 2 tspn
White sesame seeds - 1 tspn
Salt - 1 1/2 tspn or to taste
Butter - 2.tspn or 1/4 cup hot oil

Mix all the ingredients together except butter. Warm the butter or oil & add it to the mix. Make a dough with warm water. The dough should have the consistency of chappathi dough. Make the dough into equal sized kozhukattai (rounds) & cover them with wet  towel.

Put a piece of dough into the murukku press & & press them directly over the hot oil. Dough should remain covered in wet towel all the time to not let them dry. I make murukku with 1/4 cup of hot oil instead of butter while mixing the dough & there is not much difference in taste between the two. Therefore, diet conscious people can use oil instead of butter.
