Magizhampoo murukku
I came to know about Magizhampoo murukku/Magizhampoo thenkuzhal after marriage from my MIL. She makes it every year during Diwali. Last year I gave a try on my own. But its color became very dark as I added more sugar & Coconut milk. This year I referred this recipe and gave a try.It came out very well and crunchy.The addition of moong dal flour, sugar candy( Kalkandu) and coconut milk is the highlight of magizhampoo murukku. Some people who don’t like sweet taste in murukku avoid using sugar. It tastes good in either ways. But I love the mild sweetness in this mullu murukku more than plain salted ones. So its purely our choice. Lets see how to make magizhampoo murukku in detail !

  • Adding more coconut milk makes the murukku hard.So do not use more than mentioned quantity.Use thin coconut milk. you can also use store bought coconut milk powder to make the milk but do not make it more thick.Use thin milk only.
  • Adding more sugar changes the color of murukku.So do not add more.This murukku is supposed to be mildly sweet.So no need to add more sugar.Replace kalkandu/candy with sugar if you don’t have it.
  • If you don’t like sweet taste,u can omit sugar & use coconut milk alone
  • Always cook this murukku in low to medium flame to get a nice,well cooked uniform colored murukku.
Enjoy this crunchy,mildly sweet,coconut milk flavored murukku for this Diwali!
