Puzhungal arisi murukku – south Indian murukku made with parboiled rice and fried gram dal (pottukadalai) by grinding wet batter in grinder. When I posted pottukadalai murukku recipe last year for Diwali, one of my reader friend Bharathi Siva immediately told this recipe. I that time itself decided to try out for the next Diwali. I had a fear of trying grinding fresh batter and make murukku, thinking it might turn to a loose batter instead of dough. Somehow gathered my confidence to try this and I am so so glad that I tried this. Though I like our regular murukkus made with rice flour, I used to wonder certain store bought murukkus, it will be slightly different in texture, flavour and taste. I got the answer when I tasted this murukku. It is puzhungal arisi murukku, made by grinding wet batter.
Actually I had sweet sev post in my drafts for today’s post, but I thought I will post it later and thought since last week I posted sweet mixture last week, this week I can post a Diwali snacks recipe. And this was topping my list as well as reminded to me by Aparna. This comes out crisp and light and so very flavourful. I will be making this often instead of my potato murukku.
