Spicy Rice Murukku RecipePrep Time : 10 Minutes | Cook Time : 20-25 minutesRecipe Category : SnacksMakes 2 cupsIngredients
- Rice Flour 1 cup
- Pottukadalai maavu/Roasted Gram dal Flour 1/4 cup
- Warm Oil 1 tsp
- Pearl Onion/Sambar Onions 4-5 no.
- Green chilli 2 or 3 no.
- Cumin Seeds 3/4 tsp
- Salt to taste
- Hing a pinch
- Oil to deep fry
First take 1/3 cup pottukadalai/dalia and blend it to a fine powder and sift it and keep aside.
Then add onion and green chilli in a blender, add 1 tsp water and blend it to a fine paste.
And in a mixing bowl add rice flour, ground dalia powder, enough salt, cumin seeds, hing, sesame and mix well.
After that add ground chilli-onion paste mix well with the flour, then add water little by little and knead it to a soft and pliable dough.
then divide the dough in to 2 big balls and keep covered with a damp cloth.
Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying, then grease murukku achu with oil and fill with it with one divided portion, close it tightly. I used star shaped achu/plate for making Rice murukku.
After 1-2 minutes turn other side and fry till the hissing sound stops and murukku turns light golden color. Once done remove from the oil and drain it in paper towel.
After cooling store the murukku in an air tight container. This murukku remains good for upto 3 weeks or more.
You can also replace pottukadalai maavu with Besan Flour/Kadala maavu.
As the chillies I used were not spicy so i used 7 chillies, if using spicy ones then use 1-3 for 1 cup rice flour.
Because of more green chilli the dough got light greenish tinge and the color of the murukku was also bit brown color.
But If using, 2 or 3 chillies you will get light golden color murukku.
You can also replace pearl onions with green onion.
The Same way i have tried thattai too...but for 1 cup i used only 1 tbsp roasted gram dal flour.
I fried like Thool Murukku, but if you have patience you can shape it to spirals.
