butter murukku
Gokulashtami is around the corner.As I have already shared Vella seedai , Uppu seedai , Kai murukku , thattu vadai and Appam recipes , I wanted to try some other easy neivedyam recipe. Yesterday I came across this super crunchy butter murukku recipe/Benne murukku under easy Diwali snacks recipe.I bookmarked it immediately and tried it on account of Krishna jayanthi. The results were too good. We loved it a lot and the whole box got emptied in minutesWinking. Making kai murukku may be difficult to some of you in this festive season.It needs a lots of practice & patience. In that case,this butter murukku ( Vennai murukku in Tamil) comes to rescue.As Lord Krishna is fond of butter,this recipe suits this festival very well. Its so easy to make and you don’t need to prepare soaked & ground processed rice flour or urad dal flour for murukku dough. Just store bought idiyappam flour, roasted gram flour and besan flour would do.I tried this recipe from here by making a small change in the ratio of flours to make white colored murukku.It came out well with crispy,melt in mouth texture. Friends,if you are looking for some easy murukku recipes for this Gokulashtami,Diwali and other festivals you can go ahead with this recipe. You can make it successfully even if you are a beginner.It’s a good tea time snack & for packing  kids snacks box.Lets see the preparation of butter murukku recipe with stepwise pictures.I took a video to help beginners.Hope it is  understandableThinking and useful to you all.

INGREDIENTS
1 cup = 200 ml
  • Rice flour - 1 cup ( store bought flour/Idiyappam flour)

METHOD
  • In a wide bowl,take the rice flour,gram flour,besan flour,butter,salt,hing and cumin seeds.Mix everything well. Add water little by little and make a non sticky dough. I used nearly 1/2 cup + 1-2 tbsp of water.Cover the dough till you make murukku.Do not let it dry.

  • Now take the star mould and fill the murukku maker with a ball of dough. Heat oil to deep fry and check the oil temperature by dropping a pinch of dough.If it raises to the top immediately,oil temperature is right.Keep the flame low and press the murukku.

  • Cook in medium flame till the bubbles cease.Fry it patiently else murukku will turn brown with a burnt smell.Remove in a tissue paper using a slotted ladle.Store in an air tight box once its cool down completely.

Note
  • As per the original recipe,2 tbsp of besan and 1.5 tbsp of gram flour is used.But I added them in equal ratio to get white colored murukku.
  • Do not replace butter with oil or ghee.As the name says,butter murukku should be made with butter.
  • You can replace cumin with sesame seeds or ajwain.But flavor would vary.

Try this easy murukku recipe and enjoy with tea/coffee !
