    The best murukku I ever had. Very healthy and easy to make. It became a instant hit in my apartment complex. I have voted a 10 for this. No one believed me when I said there is no butter in the recipe, because it was so soft and crunchy. You can even skip the hot oil in the ingredients and it still comes out very very soft.

    When I read the recipe, I was doubtful about steaming the flours. But I decided to try it because I had a lot of rice flour and All purpose flour. I am so glad, I tried.

       Thank you all,for trying and posting your comments.As Seema asked when I steam cooked flour in a vessel,the consistency of maida didn't reach rice flour consistency and it was so difficult to press the atchu.So it is better to steam cook them in a cloth using idliplates for 1/2 hr atleast.Thank you.

    Hi kalpana,

    I tried this yesterday and it came out very well. I put the 3 flours in a vessel ,kept inside the idly cooker and steam cooked for 1/2 hr. U well said kalpana the taste was also very different from the regular shop bought muruku. Thank u kalpana ,u shared with us all very nice and different type of muruku snack without urad flour .one nice thing abt this snack is it doesn’t absorb more oil ,for those who are more fat cautious it is very nice snack ,once again thank u kalpana,have a nice day

    Hi, Here are the answers for all your enquiries.To steam cook easily, put all the flour in a vessel and keep it inside your idli cooker or pressure cooker closing it with a lid. The reason for steam cooking is maida should be bought to rice flour consistency and the flour should not be fried.

    Hi Kalpana..

    Nice tempting recipe..Planning to give it a try.Could u pls let me know why do u steam cook the flours.Can I prepare by just kneading the dough as we normally do for all other Muruku’s.Is it a must to steam cook them??I haven’t experimented this method earlier,so not very sure.Awaiting for ur reply.

      Hi Geetha,

      Here is what I did to steam them. Hope you might have some clean dhothi (or any thin clean white cloth should be fine), just put all the flour and tie a loose knot. Place this over an idli steaming plate (Use the lowest, so that might give some room to keep the flour) and steam it in the Idli cooker. Lets also wait for Mrs. Kalpana' s reply, bcos she might have a better suggestion.
