Murukku powder
Murukku podi/Powder is a very easy and tasty snacks recipe which can attract ur kids easily. Its just a single step process..This recipe may be known to most of u but u might have forgotten about it.This post is to refresh ur memories :)..We all would have made thenkuzhal or mullu muruuku for Diwali and i hope u have some murukku leftover in ur pantry. Some kids hesitate/don’t like to eat mullu murukku as it pricks the jaws.I have seen toothless old people getting mouth ulcers by eating murukku.So,for those people, u can try this way. They’ll love it for sure. When i was young , kittu aachi( my dad’s periamma) used to come to our house to help my mom for making thenkuzhal murukku.She was a very old toothless lady. As she couldn’t eat murukku as such , my mom make this murukku podi for her and store in a box.She used to enjoy it a lot ..As kids , we too( me & my sis) used to take it in a bowl and have it after coming from school.A glass of milk and this murukku podi was our evening snacks those days during DiwaliSmile. Yesterday i tried this with leftover magizhampoo murukku for Raksha & she loved it. More than Raksha , myself and Sendhil relished a lot and we finished the bowl very quickly .Thenkuzhal murukku podi tastes the best according to me. Do try this murukku podi for a change if u have not attempted so far..U may love it like me Open-mouthed.
