Puzhungal Arisi Murukku | Idli Rice Murukku | Murukku Using Idli Rice | Diwali Murukku Recipe

Puzhungal Arisi Murukku
Murukku is one of the must snack Menu in our house for Diwali festival. My mom & Grandma mostly makes Thenkuzhal & Rice Murukku/Mullu Murukku for Diwali and these both murukku are prepared using rice flour (homemade or store bought flour) and very rarely make this Idli Rice Murukku.  Last weekend when I was talking to my Mil I told about the Jalapeno Murukku recipe which kids liked it very much and that time she told me to try murukku using Idli Rice & Dry red chilli for this Diwali. Without any second thought I tried it today and it came out so good. 
This taste is entirely different from the readymade flour murukku, these are melt in mouth texture and flavorful too. Instead of dry red chilli, I used chilli powder. If you want to make murukku in big 
batches then this method is best and easy, the recipe as follows..

  • After cooling store the murukku in an air tight container. This murukku remains good for upto 3 weeks or more.
  • That's it...super crunchy and tasty Puzhungal Arisi Murukku ready.
You can use Idli rice or Ponni Puzhungal rice too.
Using the same recipe you can also make thattai, for thattai you need to grind little thick along with other ingredients add channa dal and peanuts.
This Murukku will look light golden color when done from oil, but after few minutes the color changes to dark golden color.
I did not use any water to mix the ingredients with the ground batter, i only used water while grinding.
