butter murruku recipe

butter murukku is one of our favorite snack. this recipe of butter murrukku was shared with me by durga aunty, who has already shared some fab south indian recipes before like curd rice, pongal and methi dosa.

murukku is the south indian variation of the chakli that is made in maharashtra and gujarat. while the basic method remains the same, there are many variations of murukku made with different ingredients and their proportions.

the butter murukku recipe shared here is made from rice flour, roasted chana dal flour and besan. this butter chakli recipe is very easy. you will need a chakli maker or murukku press to prepare these savory snacks.

i made the murukku twice. first time did not take pics. so then took pics the second time when i made them. you can easily double the recipe.

  • use the star nozzle lid for preparing murukku. apply some water in the chakli/murukku maker.

frying butter murukku

  • heat oil for deep frying in a kadai or pan.
  • let the oil become medium hot. check the oil temperature by adding a small piece of the dough. if the dough comes up gradually and steadily on top, the oil is hot enough to fry. if it comes up too quickly, then oil is too hot. if it settles down at bottom of kadai or comes up very slowly, the oil is not hot.
  • when the oil is hot enough, press holding the chakli maker directly on top of the oil and let the murukku directly fall in the oil.
  • do not over crowd the kadai with murukku. add as much as needed without overcrowding the kadai.
  • fry till the murukku are half done or have become slightly crisp. after adding the murukku, do not touch them immediately with the slotted spoon as they break. they need to become slightly crisp first and then you can turn them over with the slotted spoon.
  • turn over the butter murukku with a slotted spoon, so that they get fried evenly.
  • keep on turning to get them evenly golden. fry them till the sizzling in the oil reduces and the butter murukku becomes golden.
  • remove with a slotted spoon and drain butter murukku on kitchen paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • in the same way fry all the murukku this way in batches. when cooled, store butter murukku in an air-tight box or jar.

frying butter murukku

12. heat oil for deep frying in a kadai or pan. let the oil become medium hot. check the oil temperature by adding a small piece of the dough. if the dough comes up gradually and steadily on top, the oil is hot enough to fry. if it comes up too quickly, then oil is too hot. if it settles down at bottom of kadai or comes up very slowly, the oil is not hot enough. remove the fried piece and check the texture. follow the tips mentioned below.

tip 1: if the murukku breaks in the oil, the dough is slightly dry. add a few teaspoons of water. mix very well and knead the dough again.
tip 2: if you do not get a proper shape, then this means that the dough has become too moist. add some rice flour and mix well.
tip 3: taste the murukku piece and if it feels dense or hard, then add 1 to 2 teaspoon more of butter. mix very well and knead again.
tip 4: if the murukku looks very oil and has absorbed too much of oil, then add a few teaspoons of rice flour and mix again. this happens if too much fat has gone in the dough.
