Besan Flour / Kadalai Maavu Murukku

       Most people use roasted gram flour or moong dal flour for preparing murukku. But in our villages besan flour is also used. The difference is that besan murukku is more aromatic and preparation is also very easy because besan flour is readily available.

Recipe Cuisine : South Indian | Recipe Category: Snacks
Preparation Time: 5 mins | Cooking Time: 15 mins | Yields: 15 (medium size)

Rice Flour
½ cup
Besan Flour/ Kadalai Maavu
¼ cup
½ tbsp
Red Chilli Powder (click here for homemade red chilli powder recipe)
1 tsp
Sesame Seeds
1 tsp
¼ tsp
As Required
For Deep Fry

 1. Sieve besan flour, rice flour, red chilli powder, asafoedita and salt for 2 times.
2. Then add this flour in a wide bowl and add butter to this mixture. Mix them well with your fingers till it becomes like bread crumbs.
3. Now add water little by little and knead it into a soft dough.
4. Take the murukku-press and choose the design as per your wish. I used star design. (mullu murukku design).
5. Grease the murukku-press with oil, then fill the murukku-press with dough upto ¾ of the press. Press a round shape on the ladle. I used 2 ladles for quick process.
6. Heat the oil in a pan till it becomes hot or put a pinch of dough into the oil. If the dough comes up immediately, then this is the correct stage of oil heating.
7. Now flip the ladle over the oil. After a min, flip the murukku and cook till the sizzling sound reduces completely.
8. Take it out from the oil and drain them using tissue paper. Repeat this for remaining dough also. Allow it to cool down completely and store it in a air tight container.
    Tasty besan murukku is ready to serve with tea.
1. We can get 12 large size murukku for this quantity.
2. Do not reduce the flame to simmer. Leave some time gap between batches of murukku.
3. When making large number of murukkus, make the dough also in batches.
