Mix soda and vanaspathi to make a frothy paste, to this add split roasted gram flour, rice flour, gram flour, salt, sesame seeds, red chilli powder along with water.
Mix them thoroughly to form a smooth dough. It might be little sticky, apply some oil or butter to your palms to avoid that.
Use a Murukku achu which looks star shaped to make this kind. Press the dough in hot oil and deep fry them in batches until golden. Drain excess oil , let cool and then store in an air-tight container.
Split roasted gram flour also known as Daliya flour, Pottukadalai maavu, Fried gram flour– Available in all Indian grocery stores. If you don’t find flour, buy regular split roasted gram and grind them to a fine powder.
Murukku achu is a must of this variety, but if you don’t have one, try using cake decorating pastry bags which comes with a star nozzle. Zip-lock does not help here.
