Crispy Murukku

murukku2

Murukku is the most popular Indian savoury snacks.  Amma makes this along with other snacks & sweets for Deepavali.  Making murukku seemed to be very hard to me but once I made it along with my friends vidya, renuka & kirthiga  I couldn't believe how simple it is :)

Vidya (the day's chief chef) who started the idea of making the murrukku kneaded the dough while renuka dry roasted the rice flour.  Now, its the turn of kirthiga (yup! an expert in piping the pattern) made perfect rounds & finally renuka (really exemplary - blush even after frying 50 murukkus ) deep fried them.  Wondering !!! wht am I doing behind?  S, now the toughest part tasting it first, draining the excess oil & storing it in the airtight container.  Our first attempt, was super duper hit & the most importantly we had fun to the core.  It's amazing !!!
