Chakkuli/Murukku

Another favorite snack on which I like to munch on. Easy to make but be sure you are energetic as you have to stand for a long time pressing the molds and deep frying them. The best way to cook these are as a group activity.

Ingredients :
Rava/ Sooji : 1 cup
Jeera/ Cumin Seeds : 1/2 tsp
Rice Flour : 1 cup
White Sesame seeds : 2 tbsp.
Water : 2 cups
Chilli Powder : 1 tsp
Asafoetida : a pinch
Butter : 1 tbsp
Salt : according to taste
Oil : for deep frying

 Procedure :
1. In a deep bottomed pan bring the water to a boil.
2. Once it boils add jeera, red chilly powder, asafoetida, salt and rava.
3. Cook the rava till it becomes a lumpy dough.
4. Let it cool down and add 1 cup rice flour.
 5. Now add 1 tbsp butter and sesame seeds and mix it with the rava dough.
6. Now put them into molds and make the swirl patterns.
7. Now deep fry them. Make sure to deep fry them till the bubbles disappear from the oil.
8. Cool them down and store them in air tight containers.
