Posted on : 04/Nov/2020 2:29:38 PM

One of the favourite spicy and crispy popular snack items, Coconut milk murukku is prepared with rice flour, moong dal (green gram)flour and coconut milk as the main ingredients.

  • Rice flour (I used idiyappam flour) - 1 cup
  • Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
  • Moong dal flour - 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp + to deep fry
  • Salt - as needed

To make moong dal flour, (paasi paruppu or green gram flour) dry roast yellow moong dal in a Kadai over medium flame until it turns slightly golden. Cool down, powder in a mixie. Sieve it and store to use it.

The Recipe:
  • Take 3/4 cup grated coconut and grind it with 1/2 cup warm water. squeeze and filter it through a metal strainer and collect the coconut milk.
  • Use this coconut milk to knead the dough for the murukku.
  • In a mixing bowl, add rice flour,  moong dal flour, cumin seeds, 1 tbsp oil, salt and mix well.
  • Add coconut milk little by little and mix. If needed, add more water and make a smooth dough.
  • Heat oil in Kadai. Fix the murukku press with star shape holed plate and fill the press with dough.
  • Over a few greased ladles, squeeze the murukku.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the murukku carefully to oil by inverting the ladle with murukku in oil.
  • Cook over medium flame. Flip and cook until sound and bubble reduces completely.
  • Drain over paper towel. Regulate heat so that while murukku is dropped it is high, while cooking it is medium. Repeat to finish the dough.
