Wash white rice, green gram and Bengal gram.
Drain and grind them to a fine powder.
Sieve the mix so that lumps and grains can be discarded.
Mix together the above powder, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, asafoetida, salt and little water to make a paste of it.
Use the star holed achu in the murukku maker and place a portion of the above paste into it.
Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.
Squeeze the paste into the hot oil very few at a time.
:- The shape of murukku is just like small bamboo shorts.:- The oil in the kadai should be very well heated before the mix is poured.:- If crowded, the fries won`t cook very well as the oil temperature will come down. So, put only 10 nos at a time.
Thanks for this.
