Wash the urad dal 2-3 times thoroughly with water.

Add the washed urad dal to the the pressure cooker, add 1 cup of water and cook for 3-4 wishtles.

Wait for the steam to completely release. Now open the pressure cooker, the urad dal would have cooked completely.

Add the cooked urad dal to the mixer and grind it to fine paste. You need not add water, if needed sprinkle some water, make paste and keep it aside.

Mean while sieve the rice flour and transfer it to a bowl. I have used home made rice flour, please check the rice flour link for the recipe. Pound the cumin powder, melt the butter and keep it ready.

Add the Rice Flour/Arisi Maavu to the wide bowl. Now add the melted ghee and mix it well, so the butter spreads evenly throughout the flour.

Add required amount of salt, cumin powder, sesame seeds and mix everything well.

Now add the urad dal paste to the rice flour mixture.

Mix everything really well, add little water to make a smooth and non sticky dough.

Grease the murukku press with little oil and use the three hole acchu. Now fill the dough in the murukku press.

Heat oil in a kadai and check the oil temperature by dropping a small piece of the dough into the oil. If it raises immediately then the oil temperature is perfect.

Press the murukkus on clean ziplocks or on a jalli karandi and keep it ready, when the oil is at right temperature , transfer it to the oil .

After about 40-50 seconds, flip the murukku and let it cook on the other side also. Cook the murukku evenly on both sides until the ‘shh’ sound stops.

Remove it from oil and drain it on paper towel.

After the murukkus cool down, transger it to an airtight container. These murukkus stay good for about 4 weeks, but the thing is they taste so good it gets over in 2-3 days.

Similarly make murukkus with rest of the dough and store them for later.

Super crispy, crunchy, delicious and tempting murukkus are aready to be enjoyed.


Keep the dough covered to avoid drying of the dough.

I have used both sesame seeds and cumin powder, you can use either one of them.

If you are very conscious about adding butter, you can replace the butter with hot oil. But butter gives added taste to the murukku.

When you break open the murukku you will see a long tubular hole running throughout the murukku which indicates your murukku is perfect.

I have used acchu with many holes, you can use that as well.
