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.
