Kai Murruku/Chakkilam-Diwali Snacks

                     My MIL visited us a few weeks back and was with us for a while.So i thought of learning this recipe.She was very happy to teach me the recipe(but preparing kai murruku needs lot of practice).So when she was preparing it i immediately started taking the pics for the blog purpose as now a days when ever i learn anything new only my blogging mind comes first to post them immediately.







Ingredients :

Par boiled rice/Idly rice 3 cups
Roasted gram/pottu kadalai 1 cup
Dalda/Vanaspathi 50 ml
Oil For deep frying
Crystal Salt 2 tsp


Method :

1.Soak the rice for 3 hrs and grind the rice along with the salt in the grinder and the batter should be too nice and should not add too much water.Batter should be thick than the idly batter.





2.In a hot wok put the dalda and melt it.Pour it on the grinded batter.






3.Now powder the roasted gram and add to the batter.






4.Mix the batter well and the batter should be bit loose.(ie may be like chapathi batter.)





5.Spread a dry cotton towel on a flat surface and prepare the murruku on top of the towel.








6.In a thick deep kadai,preferably an iron one pour the oil and heat it.Once the oil is hot drop the murruku one after one,may be 6 to 8 in case of a big kadai and confident on cooking them at a time.







7.When the sound of the oil reduces and the murruku starts floating up flip the murruku on the other side and cook till the bubbles in the oil reduces and take murrukus out.Enjoy the kai murruku.(We use to have with onion pickle which tastes heavenly.






Notes :


1.While grinding take care not to add too much of water,else making murruku will be difficult.
2.Grinding the batter in the grinder than the mixie will give a good result.


This video is just to show how my MIL prepared the murruku
