Muthusaram/Mullu Murukku


I made this snack for Janmashtami/Krishna Jayanthi.
Ingredients:

Rice flour - 2 cups
Besan /Chickpea Flour - 1/2 cup
Urad dal Flour - 1/2 cup
Chilli Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
White/Black Sesame seeds - 2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 2 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying - about 3 cups
Water for making the dough


Method:

Mix all the flours together.Add the chilli powder,salt,asafoetida,sesame seeds and required amount of salt.
Melt the butter and add to the flour.Add water little by little till it becomes a smooth dough.
Place the star shaped disc in the murukku press.Fill the dough upto three-quarters of the press.
Heat the oil in a deep pan.
When the oil is hot enough,hold the press over the oil and squeeze the handles of the press in a circular motion.
Cook for sometime.Then turn over the murukku and fry for sometime.
When they become golden brown in color,remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
