Ajwain Red Rice Murukku

Two days back, it was raining like anything and obviously everyone at home want something crispy to munch for their snacks, so i quickly prepared this flavourful crispy murukkus. These crispy murukkus go for usual ingredients except ajwain aka omam seeds, yep these murukkus tastes almost like sev aka ompodi and also like murukku. An excellent snack to munch anytime of the day,definitely kids will simply love having this crispy murukku. Seriously ajwain gives a wonderful flavour to this murukku, am sending this crispy beauties to Srivalli's Kid's Delight-Anniversary Potluck Party.

2cups Gram flour
1+1/2cups  Red Rice flour
1/2cup Fried gram/Pottukadalai flour
1tbsp Butter (room temperature)
2tbsp Sesame seeds
1/2tsp Asafoetida powder
Oil for deep frying
1tbsp Ajwain seeds

Soak the ajwain seeds in hot water for half an hour, then grind it as fine paste with the soaked water and keep aside.

Take the gram flour,red rice flour,fried gram flour,butter, sesame seeds, asafoetida powder and salt in a large bowl, mix everything for a while,now add ajwain water to turn them as soft and smooth dough..

Take the murukku press with your choice of nozzle,meanwhile heat the oil for deepfrying,squeeze out directly the murukku dough to the hot oil, fry until the bubbles gets off.

Drain the murukkus with paper towel,store them in an air tightened box.

Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee..
