  • Wash and clean the rice well. Leave it to dry.
  • Once it has dried completely, powder it nicely.
  • Fry the white gram and powder it. Keep it aside.
  • Mix together the powdered rice, powdered gram, white sesame seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder, butter and salt. Do not add water.
  • Take a little of this mixture and add water to it to get a dough like consistency.
  • Take this dough and twist it into circular shapes of that of the murukku (chakkli).
  • Heat oil in a kadai or a pan.
  • :- To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a pinch of dough into it. If it sinks, the oil isn`t hot enough. If the dough springs to the top with bubbles all around it, then the oil is ready.
  • Drop in the murukku gently into the hot oil and fry till golden brown.
  • Keep flipping the sides till the murukku is done.
  • :- Store in an air tight container.
