My brother is visiting me and I wanted to make some snacks for him to munch. I made this murukku and it was so tasty that more than my brother, my kids are snacking on it every now and then. Just mix two kinds of flour and press it through the murukku machine with the right plate in hot oil and enjoy the excellent taste of this wonderful snack.


Channa dal Flour (Besan Flour) — 2 cups

Rice Flour –1 cup

Chilli Powder –3 tsp

Asafetida –1/4 tsp

Salt –to taste

Butter(room temperature) –1/5 cup

Oil — for frying


1. In a big vessel, mix besan, rice flour, salt, chilli powder, asafetida, and butter. Add water little by little and make a soft dough.

2. Heat oil in kadai. Put some dough in the murukku press fitted with ribbon murukku plate and press the dough through the murukku press in hot oil.

3. Turn over and fry the ribbon murukku well both sides in medium flame. Drain the oil from the ribbon murukku in a strainer. Store in an airtight container.
