Ragi Murukku / Finger millet Chakli

  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.

Requirements :

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
Method :

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.
 Press the murukku and fry in oil.

Cook till the bubbles around each murukku stops.

Ragi murukku are ready to be served.

Store in airtight containers.


You can make the murukku as spirals or as separate threads.

Hot oil can be used instead of butter.
