All Purpose Flour Murukku


This is a Indian cuisine recipe but very much popular in Sri Lanka also.  This is just a melt in your mouth type murukku. whenever mom made this immediately it would finish.This is my all time favorite snack. when I made this first time it was very hard. but the second time it is soft, still not like my mom’s one, hopefully It will get better I think.



  • All Purpose Flour [steamed]     2 cups
  • Egg                                          1
  • Salt                                          1 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder                     1/4 tsp
  • Chili Powder                             2 tsp
  • Hot Coconut Milk                      3/4 – 1 cup
  • Oil For Deep Frying

To steam the flour take a clean cloth or a aluminium foil and transfer the flour to it. Now steam it in a steamer for 30 – 40 minutes. after steamed remove the cloth and you will be able to see the lump formation. simply break it with a big spoon or spatula and let it cool, after it cool down sieve the flour completely. Or wait until flour cool down and using a grinder grind the flour and sieve. make sure no lumps exists.

After you prepared the flour add in salt,turmeric and chili. Give a quick mix and add the egg mix well. now gradually add the the hot coconut milk and make a soft dough.

With a murukku mold or using an icing syringe or a piping bag, you can make your murukku on a greased surface in whatever shape you wish. You can make round shape like I made. after making deep fry them on medium flame until it turns golden brown. transfer in to a tissue and drain the oil. now you can serve them.



Make sure the milk is hot. when i made first time milk was not enough hot and it turned out hard.

I did not get the chance to click step by step photos this time but I promise next time when I make I will sure add it to the post.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by. Actually steaming changes the texture of flour such as less gluten (or maybe gluten free but not sure about it). You fill feel the difference when you add water, as you will able to make a dough without lumps and the flour will uptake more water. You won’t be able to squeeze the dough easily from a piping bag without steaming the flour.
