  • Rice flour - 2 cups
  • Poasted Split Gram (Pottu kadalai) - 3/4 cup
  • White or Black sesame seeds - 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Pepper pdr - 1 tsp
  • Chilli pdr - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as req
  • Butter - 4 tbsp
*** Muruku press is required ***


Grind pottu kadalai to powder. Make sure you remove the ungrinded ones by seiving.

To rice flour add the powdered pottu kadalai, cumin, White or black Sesame seeds, pepper pdr (opt), chilli pdr(opt) and salt.
Mix the above using lil water such the consistency reaches that of chappathi dough.Now add butter (consistency should be watery) and make sure that the butter is cool when added to the dough.
Allow the dough to rest covered for few minutes. Fill the dough in the muruku press. You can use star plate which comes along with the press to get similar murukus like mine.
Now once u use the presser and make dough in muruku shapes onto a clean cotton cloth or some aluminium foil, immerse it in heated oil.
    Tasty murukus are ready.


    1. Instead of rice flour ,you can add wet rice mavu by grinding boiled rice (which should be soaked for 5 hours in water)in grinder to a consistency of thick curd (which we usually grind for idly batter).Then you can add dry pottu kadalai powder,and others as u said.Try it once and taste it. it will be more grispy.
