Crispy Murukku Recipe – A Delicious Indian Snack


  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup urad dal flour (black gram flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or ghee
  • Water as needed
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, urad dal flour, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, asafoetida, and salt.
  • Gradually add the melted butter or ghee to the dry ingredients and mix well to form a crumbly texture.
  • Slowly add water, little by little, and knead the mixture into a soft, smooth dough. The dough should be pliable and not too sticky.
  • Take a portion of the dough and place it inside a Murukku maker or chakli press fitted with the desired plate (star-shaped or plain).
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat.
  • Squeeze the Murukku maker directly over the hot oil in a circular motion to form spiral shapes or any desired pattern.
  • Fry the Murukku until they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove them using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  • Let the Murukku cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.

Enjoy the crunchy and flavorful Murukku as a delightful Indian snack with tea or on its own!
