Butter Murukku

This is another version of Rice Murukku,it can be made more quickly and easily as they don't even need to be pressed into shapes,they can be pressed directly into the oil.The process is more or less similar to the rice murukku,These ones are super soft and melt in your mouth !!

You'll Need:
Rice Flour - 1 and 1/4 cups
Daria/Roasted Chana Dal/Pottukkadalai powder - 2 Tbsp
Melted salted butter - 2  - 3 tbsp
Cumin seeds (optional)-  1 tsp
salt - 1 and 1/4 tsp
Hing a pinch
oil as needed for deep frying
Water as needed
Murukku press

-For the flours : For the rice flour - I used store brought Idiyappam/String hoppers rice flour.
For the Daria powder - Just grind Daria to a fine powder.
-In a bowl add the flours and the salt and mix well.Next add the butter and mix with you hand .When you take a little between your fingers and press it,it should hold its shape for a few seconds ,before crumbling.
-Mix the hing in the water.Add the water little by little to the flour to make a medium tight dough.Be careful with the amount of water as it can make the dough soggy.
-Heat the oil in the pan and let it heat up,it shouldn't be very hot,let it stay on medium heat.
-Now add a portion of the dough in the press .
-Always keep the remaining portion of the dough covered with a damp cloth.
-Pipe into the hot oil and  fry them ,turning it over in between.When they are done the oil around them will stop sizzling.Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
-Once they are cooled store them in airtight containers.

Thanks for stopping by ! Have a nice day !
