kai-murukku-suthu-murukku

   My grandma is an expert in making these “Kai murukku”. She makes it so fast and its will look so elegant when she makes it with ease. My mom too makes kai murukku, but both their style differs a lot. I always loved watching them making it for Gokulashtami. I used to sit and hear all those stories and gossips they both used to talk. My paati also makes murukku in shapes of some small kolams specially for me. They will be so so cute.These home made kai murukkus are so different in flavour and taste than we buy from the shops. I love this home made murukkus for its flavour and unique taste.

   I always try my hands in making these murukku when ever I make thenkuzhal or other murukku with little dough reserved for this.  Last year for diwali I tried with small portions, but I could not make it thin and hence ended up in chewy and hard murukkus. But this time, I took the recipe from my mom and made this with freshly ground rice flour and indeed got perfect taste,just like my paati/amma’s murukku.  By posting this recipe here with video,by no means I am claiming I had learnt making this in a perfect way. Just posting what ever I made/learnt/got. I am sure by practice I can make perfect murukkus,not only in taste but in shapes too very soonCool.

Kai murukku recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snacks
Prep Time: 3 Hours    |  Cook time: 30 mins    Makes: 20

Ingredients

Raw rice(I used sona masoori) 1 cup
Urad dal flour 2 tblsp, heaped
Butter, softened or melted 3 tblsp
Sesame seeds 2 tsp
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp
Salt & water as needed
Oil For deep frying

 

Method:

  1. Soak the rice for at least 2 hours and drain the water,spread it in a clean cloth or news paper to absorb the excess water.
  2. DSC_4732
  3. Grind it to a fine powder in a mixer.
  4. DSC_4736
  5. Sieve the flour(you can add the remaining coarse rice to the next batch grinding). Dont press(rub) and sieve. Do it gently.
  6. DSC_4747
  7. Fry the urad dal flour until nice aroma wafts.( You can fry the urad dal and powder,sieve it too. I used ready made store bought urad dal flour)
  8. DSC_4748
  9. Mix rice flour,urad flour,sesame seeds,ghee,asafoetida and salt well.
  10. DSC_4752
  11. Add water and make it to a smooth pliable dough. The dough should not have any cracks. Also take care not to add more water. So be careful when you add water. Add slowly and little by little. It should be loose enough to make the murukku.
  12. DSC_4754
  13. Take small ball and make twists/murukkus in a news paper. Grease your hands every now and then with water while making murukku. Which helps easy flowing of swirls. Also, while making swirls, make sure you hold ur hand higher and let the murukku strand hand so that making twist swirls is easy. Refer the video how I made. Its bit tricky,but sure you can learn. Make all the dough to murukkus.
  14. DSC_4756
  15. Heat enough oil in kadai and drop 3-4 at a time. Use dosa flipper (dosa thiruppi)for taking the murukku from the paper.
  16. DSC_4764
  17. Cook in medium flame. Flip the murukku after it floats on top and the shhhh…sound ceases. Fry until both sides are evenly cooked up to golden in colour.
  18. DSC_4761
  19. Store in airt tight container after cooled down. The flavour is in its best when eaten from the next day.
  20. Kai murukku

Notes

  • For one cup rice I got approximately 2 cups of flour.
  • Frying urad adds flavour to the murukku.
  • Updated: I added less urad dal flour (2 tblsp) and butter instead of  ghee and found the murukku came out whiter and crispier.
  • I used black sesame,you can also use white. You can replace ghee with butter.
  • If your dough breaks while making murukku,just sprinkle little water to make it pliable.
  • Warning: For the first batch, drop the murukku and check if it bursts. Some times this also bursts. I had some bad luck when I was studying 12th std and was trying to help my mom and ended up some hot oil spills over my face and neck. Just a warning to be careful. Not that it will !! Also never ever roll the remaining dough like seedai and put it in oil, it will sure burst.
Kai murukku video : [Play –> pause-> buffer(if your internet is slow) before viewing]


                             Sure by practise I hope to make the swirls perfect in future Batting Eyelashes.

  10. Raji, just beautiful. It bursts only when you don't sieve the flour and there are sand particles in the dough. It happened to me when I made seedai the first time. The walls were splashed with oil. I made a dive out of the kitchen just in time. Also this happens when you use rock salt. always use salt dissolve in water and filter it before pouring in the flour.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is so good...bookmarked. Have to try this one for sure...we all love murukku and it is not something that is available here. Wanted to know if it is possible to do with readymade rice flour or is it better to stick to the traditional method to soak the rice and then powdering it.
