Maida Murukku

Maida murukku tastes really yummy & without adding butter it came out so crispy


Maida - 2 cups

Urad dal flour – ¼ cup or 5 tbs

Jeera – 2 tsp

Asafeotida - 2-3 pinch

Oil – to fry

Salt - as per taste

Take Maida in a cotton cloth; steam it in an idli cooker for abt 30mts. After it gets cool sieve the maida to avoid lumps. Now add all the ingredients together & mix it well, pour 1 tbs hot oil into the flour. Now by adding sufficient water make it as dough consistency. Heat oil in a kadai in right temperature, squeeze the dough through muruku mould (single round achu) into hot oil, deep fry both sides & when hizzing sound goes down, take out the murukku from oil.

Note : When using maida to steam in pressure cooker, weight is not reqd.
