Peanut murukku is delicious with the flavor of the peanut. I had seen this recipe in a cookery show. I tried this for the first time for this diwali. It is same as making normal murukku with the addition of groundnut. In this i used homemade rice flour , i will post about it separately.
Homemade rice flour – 2 cup
Groundnut – 1 cup
Urad dhal – 2 tbs
Butter – 2 tbs
Sesame seeds – 1 tsp
Roasted gram dhal – 4 tbs
Dry chilly – 5 – 6
Salt as required
Oil for frying
Dry roast the urad dhal and grind into fine powder.
Roast the groundnuts and grind coarsely along with dry chilly.
Grind the roasted gram dhal ( potukadalai ) into fine powder.
Take a large bowl mix the rice flour , urad flour , gram dhal flour , sesame seeds and peanut powder together.
Now , add the required salt and butter , mix well with hand.
Sprinkle required water to make soft and firm dough.
Check the salt and spiceness in this stage.
Fill small ball of dough into the murukku press and make murukku.
Deep fry the murukku on both sides.

Peanut murukku is ready to serve.
I used mullu murukku plate in murukku press to make this murukku.
