Butter Murukku: (Simple Instant Recipe)

This murukku is a instant recipe and requires no soaking, no drying, no grinding. The good thing about the murukku is that we can use the store brought rice flour. There goes the recipe….


Rice flour – 2 cups
Butter / Ghee / Dalda – 4 tsp
Fried Gram Flour – 1 cup (See the preparation for more details)
Asafotedia / Hing – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – to deep fry


Grind the fried gram dhal (the dhal we use for preparing coconut chutney / pottu kadalai / bhuna chana) in a mixie to a fine powder.
Sieve the powdered fried gram dhal well and take 1 cup this flour.
Sieve the rice flour too.


In a wide vessel take rice flour, salt, fried gram flour, asafotedia and mix well till its nicely incorporated.
Now add butter / ghee / dalda and mix well.
Add water little by little and kead it to a soft dough. The dough should neither be too hard nor too soft.
In a deep pan, heat oil. Keep the flame in medium.
You can check if the oil is hot by adding a small  piece of dough into oil and if it raises up immediately then the oil is hot enough.
Take the murukku maker and fix the single star plate on it. Grease the murukku maker with little oil.
Take a handful of dough and place it in the murukku maker.
Press it in the hot oil in a circular motion. 
Wait for some time and allow it to cook.
Flip it gently to other side. Wait till it turns to golden color.
Take it out and drain it in a tissue paper.
Allow it to cool and store it in an air tight container.

If you are a beginner then first squeeze the murukku  on a plastic sheet and then carefully (gently) slide them into the hot oil.

Butter Murukku is ready. Serve it with hot coffee or tea for evening snacks J
