Ragi Murukku

Ragi murukku, quite an easy, flavourful and crunchy murukku prepared with dry roasted ragi flour, gram flour kneaded with spiced water prepared with garlic cloves and fennel seed powder...This is one of the best and delicious murukkus i used to prepare and this is one of my grandma's signature savoury snacks..My grandma prepared muruku with pearl millet (kambu), ragi and with many sort of grains..I love this simple ragi murukku, which is really a crunchy snacks even kids will love this...I prepared this murukku for our evening snacks as i had a packet of ragi flour which i bough a long back, thats why i dry roasted my ragi flour, u can prepare very well without roasting the flour too...The only thing is this murukkus looks very dark in colour but i can definitely say this murukku tastes too marvellous as usual murukkus tastes..



2cups Ragi flour
1cup Gram flour
5nos Garlic cloves
2tsp Butter
2tbsp Sesame seeds
1tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Fennel seeds
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Dry roast the ragi flour for few minutes, sieve together the ragi flour and gram flour, take them in a large bowl.

Meanwhile grind the garlic cloves and fennel seed as fine paste, add a cup of water to the grounded paste and strain the spiced water, add the butter,sesame seeds, red chilly powder to the flours and knead the flour with garlic-fennel seed water as smooth dough..Heat the oil for deepfrying and take a ball of dough, put in the muruku press..squeeze out the murukku over a greased plate and drop gently to hot oil, fry until the oil stops bubbling..drain the excess of oil in a paper towel..

Conserve in an air tightened box and this murukkus stays crunchy even after two weeks,if they rest..
