Barley Murukku/Barley Chakli - Version 2

I cant imagine Deepavali savouries without Murukkus/Chaklis, this is a must whenever we plan for our Deepavali savouries list. Obviously you can see varieties of murukkus aka chaklis in my space,last year for Deepavali savouries i tried my hands with couple of wholegrains . All my trials came out extremely fabulous and i loved the way they all came out prefectly.That why i couldnt stop myself  including the humble 'wholegrains' in most of my savouries as well as in sweets. I have already have a version of  barley murukku which goes for roasted gram powder, but this time i tried making this crunchy murukku with roasted urad dal flour, hence this is my second version of Barley murukku.. Actually barley, this incredible and versatile grains is used very much less in our daily cooking but however now many are adding this beautiful grain in their diet and surprisingly all the dishes dished out  of this grain tastes fabulous and nutritious as well.

Barley Murukku, Barley Chakli

Coming to this super crispy and dangerously addictive barley murukku,a simple homemade barley flour is very much needed and this barley flour can be prepared quickly at home just by dry roasting the whole barley and grinding them as fine powder, sieve it and conserve it in air tightened box.This barley flour is very handy and can be conserved for a long. You can add this barley flour very well in our rotis if you want to add some healthy twist to the usual rotis.Just make a huge batch and enjoy the goodness of barley. This crispy barley chaklis goes to this week's blogging marathon as i picked Festivak special as theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.  Ok lets go to the recipe now.
