For this year's Diwali, murukku was one thing on my to-do list. There are different variety of murukku and I wanted to try something that is pretty much simple. Mullu murukku or also known as muthusaram in Brahmin households, is an easy murukku recipe made with rice flour, moong dal and chana dal. This murukku is usually made for auspicious occasions and festivals like Krishna Jayanthi and Diwali.
I always thought making murukku at home was a difficult process. But making this mullu murukku was really a breeze. The main key point in making this mullu murukku is the dough consistency. Make sure you sieve all the flours well and add just enough water to make a soft dough. Add this easy mullu murukku to your list of Diwali snacks and enjoy a safe Diwali with family.
Notes and Tips
- The dough should be soft enough to squeeze through the hole. If the dough is hard and tight, sprinkle few drops of water and make the dough soft.
- If the dough is too soft, it will be difficult to squeeze and will break. Add 1 tsp of rice flour and knead the dough again.
- Keep the dough covered with a wet cloth all the time, otherwise it will dry up and become hard.
- The oil should be hot when you squeeze in. Turn down the heat to medium while cooking the murukku.
