Soak the rice in water for 2 hours.
Wash and drain fully.
Spread it on a large piece of cloth or paper and allow it to dry.
:- Do not dry it completely.
Grind it into a very nice powder and sieve this flour.
Add urad powder in the ratio 8:1.
Add salt, asafoetida, sesame seeds or cumin seeds and butter.
Mix well by adding little water and make it into a soft dough.
Using this dough, make murukkus on a sheet of newspaper(it absorbs the water) by rolling spirally to get the desired shape. Grease your hand with coconut oil to get the shapes. Leave it to dry (it should not dry too much nor it should be too watery).
Heat oil in a frying pan and deep fry, turning occasionally.
Remove the murukkus when the sound of murukku in oil become silent. These can also be made using ready-made murukku plates.
