Onion Murukku


Murukku is one of the most interesting and delicious Indian snack item. My mom makes crispy crunchy and flavorful murukku for our 4 pm grumbles.

Today fortunately it rained(errr drizzled slightly) sometime back in Chennai and it was fantastic to enjoy this murukku during tea time. The after taste of onion that it leaves in your tongue will make you say no to anything else including a glass of water just to enjoy the flavor for a while more. :)



Parboiled rice - 4 cups
Small Onion - 2 cups
Red chilly - 1 cup
Bengal gram flour - 1 cup
Roasted gram flour - 1 cup
Salt - for taste
Oil - for frying



Soak par boiled rice in water for two hours.

Grind onions and red chillies in a mixie into a paste.

Now grind the soaked rice along with the above ground onion chilly mixture in the grinder without adding much water.

Now collect it in a large bowl and mix in the gram flours and salt and mix well. Now heat 2 tblsp of cooking oil and add it to the dough and mix well.

Now put this dough into murukku maker and squeeze it in hot oil and fry till crisp.

Delicious onion flavored murukku is ready.

Store in air tight container. This quantity would be sufficient to make 2kgs of murukku.



Just in case you dont have small onions at home, just use chopped big onions to make the murukku.
