Jantikalu/Murukku~~IC Challenge

Jantikalu/Murukku was our fourth indian cooking challenge for this month of October, already four months since Indian Cooking Challenge been started..This month challenge was the famous indian savoury murukku, which was prepared during festivals like diwali or just as simple snacks..Indians have various style of preparations, some will prepare with gram flour, while other with rice and urad dal flour also many prepare with maida flour..Srivalli went for homemade rice flour and home made urad dal flour prepared with roasted urad dal..My mom used to do the same way and i just love this crunchy treats, but it has been a long i prepared rice flour at home and i have to say thanks to Srivalli for choosing this savoury crispies for this month's challenge...I prepared exactly wat she went for, i didnt changed anything and i got prefect murukkus, we didnt stop munching it..



Raw Rice - 4 cups
Urad Dal - 1 cup
Water - app 1/2 cup or more

For Seasoning:
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Asafetida/ Hing - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Butter - 75 gms

Wash and drain the rice. Shade dry the Rice for 1/2 hr. Dry roast the Urad dal to light brown. Allow it to cool.First grind rice into a fine flour, keep it aside. then grind the urad dal to fine powder.

In a wide vessel, take both the flours along with salt. Mix well. Add cumin, sesame seeds to the flour,mix well..Mix in the hing to the flour and finally add the butter. Gather everything well and you will get more of a crumbling mixture. Now slowly add water and knead a dough which is little more softer than the puri dough.

Heat a kadai with oil enough to deep fry. Once the oil is hot enough, simmer to low flame.

Take the Muruku Aachu, wash and wipe it clean. Then divide the dough into equal balls. Fill the Muruku maker with the dough. You can either press it directly over the flames or press over a paper and gently slide it down the hot oil.Cook over medium flame, using a slotted spoon, turn it over to other side to ensure both sides turn golden colour.

Remove to a kitchen paper and store it in a air tight container.

murukku ... the one you made is of-course crisp...

One doubt... it can be broken right? ;)

This is the doubt my uncle always ask to my aunt before eating... ha ha...

Murukku if not made proper becomes hard to be bitten... My grand mother always says... please give me this dissolved in milk if you prefer me to eat it.
