Pottukadalai (Split Roasted Gram Dal) Murukku

Pottukadalai murukku, its such a crispy snacks suits incredibly for diwali savouries, i have prepared this murukku for diwali with laddoos, besan cake and maida halwa..We enjoyed this crunchy murukku and this is one of my mom's signature recipe, she used to make out this murukku with coconut milk, but i prepared this murukku simply with rice flour, powdered roasted gram dal flour,cumin seeds, asafoetida powder with butter..This murukku is completely different from usual rice and urad dal murukkus and its tastes similar like kai muruku..



2cups Rice flour
1/2cup Pottukadalai flour (split roasted gram dal)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tbsp Butter
Salt
Oil

Sieve both rice and split roasted gram dal together, take this sieved flour in a large bowl and add the cumin seeds, asafoetida powder, butter and salt and knead as a stiff dough with enough water.. Make out enough balls from the dough, put in the muruku press..squeeze out the murukku over a greased plate and drop gently to hot oil, fry on both sides until the oil stops bubbling..drain the excess of oil in a paper towel..

Conserve in an air tightened box and enjoy this crunchy murukkus!
