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 ;)
Par-boiled rice - 4 cups
Roasted Gram - 1 cup
Butter - 75 gms
Salt - For taste
Oil - For deep frying
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.. :)
Here is My Try VS My Mom's Try :)
I just love seeing my mom make it with so much ease.. So thought of sharing a video of how she makes it. :)
