Corn flour Murukku

This is a very simple murukku recipe,made with store-bought flours.I took this recipe from Aval Vikatan magazine


Rice flour - 1 cup

Corn flour - 1/2 cup

Fried Gram Dal/Pottu kadalai Maavu - 2 Tablespoon

Besan - 3/4 cup

Chili powder - 1 tsp

Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Melted Butter - 2 Tablespoon

Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp

Salt - as required

Water - as needed to make the dough.

Oil for frying


Mix all the flour,jeera,chili powder,asafoetida,salt,melted butter.

Add water little by little to make a soft dough.

Heat  oil in a vessel.Test by dropping a little bit of murukku dough into the hot oil.If it rises immediately,then the oil is ready for frying.

In the murukku press,fix the thenkuzhal mold/achu(the one with 3 holes) and fill the dough.Start squeezing the handles of the press in a circular motion directly into the oil.

Flip the murukku so that it gets cooked on both sides. When frying sound subsides,remove the murukku form the oil and place it on a tissue paper to absorb excess oil.

Store in airtight container.
