Murukku / Simple and Easy Murukku

               Murukku is one of my all time favorite. Many people prepare it for festive seasons like diwali, pongal etc... but when I want to munch something, I do these murukkus in bulk and keep it for future use. Today we will see the simple and basic murukku which is very easy to prepare.


  • Riceflour - 2 cups
  • Black gram/urud dhal flour - 2 tsp
  • Melted butter/butter - 2 tsp (at room temp)
  • Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
  • Ajwain / omam - 1 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup (more or less as needed to make a dough )
  • Salt - as per taste (mostly 1/4th tsp)


  • Mix the rice flour and the black gram flour.
  • To this, add the butter, ajwain seeds, and salt and mix well.
  • Add asafoetida.
  • Add Water little by little and make a smooth dough.

  • In the murukku press, take half the quantity of the dough and put inside.
  • In a plastic sheet make a round shaped murukku as shown by pressing the murukku press.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in kadai, in medium flame.
  • When it is hot, slowly put one murukku at a time.
  • When the iiisssshhhh sound stops from the murukku or the murukku becomes golden colour, take them out from the oil.
  • Store in a airtight container and munch it whenever u want.


  • When using salted butter, reduce the salt quantity while adding.
  • Ajwain can be replaced by cumin seeds.
  • I used store bought flours and they both are already fried. If not fry both the flours for a min or 2.
