This murukku I made for last year Diwali , as I couldn’t post then , I am posting for this Diwali season. This was so delicious and healthy murukku with the goodness of finger millet.
As these days , the awareness to use the ancient grains have increased, if you make this murukku once and taste it , you will make it frequently.
Ragi flour – 1 cup
Rice flour – ½ cup
Besan ( Chickpea ) flour- ¼ cup
White sesame seeds – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
Butter - 2 tbs
Water as required for dough
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
In a mixing bowl , add ragi flour , rice flour and besan flour , chilli powder , sesame seeds and salt , mix well.
Add in butter and mix well.
Sprinkle little water at a time and make a soft dough.
Fill the murukku press with the dough I used the star plate.
Store in airtight containers.
You can make the murukku as spirals or as separate threads.
Hot oil can be used instead of butter.
