Benne Muruku/butter chakli

Its been long time since i have not updated my blog.....bit busy with some personal work....I have many recipe to update..but no today i finally finished drafting this Benne Muruku recipe (I actually prepared this Muruku for Diwali Festival)

This is a very quick and instant chakli(muruku) recipe which i learned it from my mom.....this is really really tasty and very crispy....must try...


Urad lentil 1 cup
Rice flour 3 cup
Sesame seed 2-3TBSP
Caraway(Ajwan) seed 1TBSP
Butter(room temp) 100gm(around 3/4 cup)
Chilly powder 2tsp
salt as per taste
warm water to make dough
Oil for deep frying

Dry roast the Urad lentil until a nice aroma comes out..let it cool then make fine powder.
In a mixing bowl add this powder along with all other dry ingredients and butter mix well

now prepare the soft dough by adding the water little by little. The should not b more soft or hard...

Now heat the oil for deep frying...fill the dough in Chakli maker

and once the oil is hot press the muruku directly in the hot oil.....

Cook both the side properly(till it is crispy) and take out from the oil..keep it on the tissue paper for 5-10..the very very easy and yummy benne muruku is ready to serve...

Serve hot with a cup of tea or coffee..

  7. Crisy and perfect murukku. BTW way the comment u posted on my space somehow got deleted, can u comment again. I have not tried murukku with urad dal, was wondering whether u powdered the dal at home or at mill, does the urad dal powder has to be very fine.
