Vengaya Murukku / onion spirals ( Murukku )

    The Diwali mood has started every where ,  I thought of posting my Diwali recipes from today .
     Today I am sharing a flavorful murukku with shallots / pearl onions. When I made this murukku , the whole house was smelling with this murukku smell.

      I used chinnavengayam  / pearl onions to make this murukku . If you can’t get pearl onion you can use the large onions.
Requirements :
Homemade Rice Flour – 2 cup
Urad dhal flour – 1/2 cup
Besan flour – ¼ cup
Roasted Gram flour – ¼ cup
Butter – 1 tbs
Shallots / pearl onions – 10
Salt to taste
Red chilli – 7 – 10 nos
Sesame seeds – ¼ tsp
Water as required
Oil for frying

Method :

Peel the skin off the shallots and grind along with red chillies.
In a bowl , add the rice flour , urad dhal flour , beasan and roasted gram flour , mix well.
Add in required salt  , sesame seeds and grounded onion + chilli paste , combine well.
Add in the butter and sprinkle little water and mix well.
Make the dough with enough water  required.
Taste the dough to adjust salt and spice level.
Heat oil in a kadai or deep frying pan.
Fill the dough in the murukku press , I used star shaped plate in the press.
 Press the murukkus into spirals and fry in oil .  when added to the oil , there will be more bubbles around each murukku .
When the bubbles stops , take out the murukku.
Repeat with the remaining dough. Let it cool and store in the airtight containers.

 Vengaya Murukku is ready to serve.

 While having the murukku , you can smell and taste the onion.
