Magizhampoo thenkuzhal – with coconut milk. Magizhampoo is a flower which is so small in size but smells heavenly and strongly too. They sort the flower in a thread with needle and wear in the plaits as we do jasmine. This magizhampoo thenkuzhal murukku resembles the look of sorted flowers. And I assume that’s why they call this so. We make this murukku a bit different… We make it as a mildly sweet murukku with coconut milk. So it is very very flavourful and very distinct in taste. I love it very much.
For sweetening we use sugar candies,Kalkandu ,my mom says if we use sugar for sweetening the murukku browns easily and sugar candies lessen this. I always love mild sweet snacks,like the diamond cuts snack. This is also one of those snacks I love. Also I love making this murukku because of its shape. I love making those cure swirls .
