ROASTED CHANA DAL POWDER MURUKKU/PUTANALA PAPPU PODI MURUKULU/FESTIVAL SPECIALS

Hey..I find out this recipe in draft...iam só happy to Share this You all.
Here in a chinese shop we get rice flour and Its not too good...I prepared some deep fritters n muruku with that flour.But my bad luck was while doing the deep frying (muruku) splitted and exploded in the hot oil and my hands burnt little bit.I just switched off the stove and ran into hall.After few minutes I entered into kitchen n I was shocked.The tiles of kitchen and stove looking oily because of exploding.Thank god!!I ran away and before going to start the process I said to MAHADEV to sit in the hall.This is one of the big disaster in my cooking history..

Later I had a conversation with my friend Vijetha and told her about the Incident.She said that,she also faced the same situation..And she also gave an Information where I can buy good quality rice flour..POMARE FOZ Is the one of best super market which i visited in FOZ...We can get so many good quality food items like dry fruits,nuts,pure honey,frozen meat,different kind of rice,dals,beans,cereals,whole wheat food items,sweets,munching snacks,chocolates,fresh fruits,veggies and more...The most Important is they have lots whole wheat foods in the store..We couple visits for every two months and last time when  I asked for rice flour they said that there was no stock..While roaming in the shop I looked over a rice flour packet and it`s a lebanese product..I have confidence on pomare foz and dared to buy again a new brand of rice flour.

one fine day I started my preparation to make some murukku..For a change I planned to add some roasted chanadal powder..Finally I got these crispy n hot murukku. This time I was very careful while deep frying and luckily it does n`t showed any explodes n other else...Iam not a heart dying snack lover,Even DH also..Just for trail I made these and got beautiful murukkus.So,here is my version of making murukku.Hope you guys will like these...

HOW TO MAKE

Mix the ingredients from  rice flour to hing in a big,wide bowl.

Add hot water slowly and with help of wooden spoon start mixing...

Next,with hands start mixing and prepare it like roti dough..it should not be too soft or too hard..

heat 2-3 cups of  oil in kadai  and select your desired plate and keep it in  muruku press.

Take a fistful size dough ball and insert into murukku press..

Check the hotness of oil by dropping pinch of dough..

Then start doing murukku..Press muruku maker in circular motions and at a time you can do 3 small or 2 big murukkus.

Keep flame in medium and start frying..Flip muruku and fry other side too.

Once done remove all and place them on  a paper..start frying next batch.

Serve hot n spicy muruku with cup of chai..I love the combination of both...



MAHAS TIPS

TIPS TO FOLLOW  WHILE MAKING MURUKKU:

Check the heat of oil exactly and start process.If the oil is too hot,muruku will turn in dark brown colour..

When using cumin/caraway seeds slightly powdered them.other wise,dough may stuck in the presser.

Be careful while adding chili powder and salt..Other wise the whole murukus tastes worst.

Try with wheat flour instead of  rice flour..(If you like experiments**)

Be careful frying and finally start making muruku when you are in fresh mood n strong .
