    Dear Mullai my friend and myself tried this for Christmas. This was the first time I was making Murruku and was confident because of using your recipe. It came out excellent- even I myself was stunned. It tasted as a professional cook had made it. Thanks for your awesome input and perfect ratio of ingredients!!

    You know what, Mullai, this was the first recipe which I made from the site and succeeded in the first attempt itself. Belated thanks for that. And I was just visiting after that. Then started giving comments. After brushing, my coffee (I don’t drink coffee or tea. So, I’ve no idea about good c or t. Pls, give me a tip to make perfect ones without tasting it) used to be yahoo inbox. Now, it is Spiceindiaonline. Just a flashback… opened up when I saw this murukku again…

    HI Mullai, I tried this receipe in my own style and it came out so tasty. My son loves cripsy snacks and buying a small pack of murukku wasn’t cost effective. I decided to make myself. I didn’t have uradflour and i couldn’t get it anywhere. So i roasted it for few seconds and added water (as my dry mixie stopped functioning as well) and put it in the juicer. It came out so tasty for the first try.
    The ratio you give is fantastic. Keep up the good work. This site not only make all wives/mum a good cook but bring we Indians together.

      Nice work Sri ! yeah unless you have a dry coffee grinder at home, its not that easy to grind a small quantity. Good to know you succeeded in finding a solution.

    You need to deep fry them,see that your oil is hot enough before frying. This might be the only reason why your muruku is not crispy.

      Hi Radha,

      Great!! hope you had a wonderful day. Nothing much over here, just another ordinary day.. did pooja, enjoyed a good meal with sweets. Actually took a day off from my website work and got myself glued "as you would say" to the TV programs.
