Indian Special Kai Murukku :)



Kai murukku


Kai murukku is a super good Indian snack. I just love it plain, spicy, along with pickle and with rasam rice too. :)

I bet no one can eat just one ;)


Ingredients:

Par-boiled rice - 4 cups
Roasted Gram - 1 cup
Butter - 75 gms
Salt - For taste
Oil - For deep frying


Kai murukku2


Method:

Soak rice in water for 2 hours. Grind it smoothly without adding much water. Powder roasted gram smoothly and now add this to the ground rice along with butter and salt. Mix well to make a smooth dough. Now make the kai murukku on a clean cloth. Once you make around 30 murukkus, take them out slowly and deep fry them turning it once till done. Kai murukku is ready to eat.

Variation: Add a little chilly powder or pepper powder to the dough and make spicy kai murukku.

This measurement would yield 60-70 Kai murukkus.

Making the kai murukku perfect is literally an art. Mom is an expert and I just tried my hand on it this time. I was pretty bad for the first try. Anyways practice makes anyone perfect na.. :)

Gosh Nithi, Lovely murukku..!! The way your mom made it, simply superb!! I am reminded how I try to copy-cat my mom, but she simply excels matter-of-factly..! I guess we have a long way to go before we adapt our mom's skills!!
BTW, I liked the way you held the murukkus like Vishnu Chakra!! :D

Mriganayani said...

Nithya - this is awesome. I love kai murukku too and your mom is a pro - you can just see her experience in the way the murukku maavu falls from her fingers and lands perfectly in twists! Wow! This is one thing I want to learn to master - maybe when I'm 60 I will!

Gethan said...

I know how tough it is to make this murukku. I have been trying since my college days. Due to the variation in the twist all my murukkus didn't turn crispy. Poor mom she didn't point out coz she knew I would get disappointed. Glad that you have done a pretty decent job...Keep it going..

Priya said...

Wow my all time fav, my mom is an expert too, am still trying and trying..Hats off to aunty..
