Potato Ragi Murukku/Potato Fingermillet Murukku/Urulaikizhangu Kezhvaragu Murukku

Diwali, this festival of lights is a very popular among Indians, though we dont live in our own country, we try to keep our tradition by celebrating this famous festival with homemade sweets and savouries. Eventhough we live far away from our country, this festival is very close to my heart.As like every year i do miss celebrating this festival in India. Never mind, i have some plans and this time we are going to celebrate a day before as Diwali falls on tuesday. Its a working day here, and everyone at home will be in school and office. Many of us will be very busy in planning the sweets and savouries and others might have already purchased their diwali new dresses. I have planned few savouries and one among those is this potato ragi murukku aka potato added fingermillet chaklis.

With fingermillet flour, gram flour, mashed potatoes with usual spices, you can make this fabulous murukks for this special festival. Making this millet based murukku during festival is definitely a best way to sneak millets as well. If you want to make a different millet based diwali special murukku, then do try this murukkus and enjoy with your dears and relatives.Trust me, this murukkus are dangerously addictive and you just cant stop with one.Sending to Srivalli's Kid's delight - Cooking with Wholegrains hosted by Kalyani.
