Growing up, we have all gulped down several homemade snacks and of course, there are some memories related to how these snacks are prepared. So, today’s recipe is about a common yet delightful snack that can be found in every other South Indian household. Muruku is an addictive snack that people usually eat with tea or as a festive treat.
Murukku simply means twisted in Tamil. It is spiral in shape which is deep fried to give this snack its true flavour. Muruku is extremely crunchy and the way you prepare them is super easy and fun. Many people may know that the basic murukku is made with rice flour and urad dal flour but there are many different kinds of murukku you can make at home. Here are six of them.
The basic version we were talking about is the janthikalu muruku. This one is made with a combination of urad dal, rice flour and some red chilli powder as per your liking.
This traditional muruku is also known as Thengai paal murukku which brings a strong flavour of coconut when you eat.
Make crunchy muruku from millet flour and enjoy a perfect snack in this year’s Janmashtami festival.
Want to make an instant version of muruku? Try this one. Sweet potato mullu muruku is made with sweet potatoes and gram flour instead of urad dal.
To get the best taste, try muruku with wheat flour. This one just melts in your mouth yet retains the same crispiness and chewiness.
