Kollu Murukku/Kulthi Chakli/Horsegram Murukku

After making Rajma murukku and Ragi omapodi, here comes an another different and completely new chakli i prepared few days back with some cooked kollu aka horsegram. These wonderful tiny beans are very rarely cooked in our cuisine, eventhough these beans are highly healthy and very nutritious. These beans are well advised for dieting peoples and whoever wants to reduce their weight. Frequent intake of these grains helps a lot for weight reducing. Coming to this interesting bean based murukku, i prepared them with a cup of leftover cooked kollu, along with gram flour, rice flour with usual ingredients.

These crispy murukkus are dangerously addictive, seriously none at home will notice the addition of horsegrams in this murukku until you reveal the 'secret ingredient'. Make these different murruku for the upcoming Festival of Lights, if you dunno still wat to make for your Diwali savouries just give a try to this fried beauties.This beauties are going Diwali Delicacies Event, hosted by me and Sangee Vijay of spicy treats and to Gayathri's Diwali Special.

 
 2cups Gram flour
1cup Rice flour
1/2cup Kollu/horsegram (grinded as fine paste)
1tbsp Black sesame seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Salt
Oil for deepfrying


Take the flours together with black sesame seeds,asafoetida powder and salt in a bowl.

Add in the kollu/horsegram grounded paste and knead everything as a soft dough.

.Heat the oil for deepfrying in medium high flame.

Take a ball of  the dough, put in the muruku press with star nozzle.

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.

Enjoy this crunchy murukkus..
