Mullu Murukku Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 2 hrs | Cooking Time : 30 mins | Makes : around 25-30
Recipe Category: Snack | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Maida - 1.5 cups
Butter - 2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1.5 tsp (I used white)
Hot Water(handbearble not too hot) - as required for the dough
Salt - to taste
Oil - as required to deep fry


  1. Steam cook maida for 10mins(I laid a white cloth inside the container then added the flour). After 10mins - When you take it, it will have lumps formed as shown. Cool down and break the lumps formed and spread it in a plate and leave it to cool down for 2hrs until it is completely dry.

  2. Then sieve it and collect it in a container, now the flour for murukku is ready. You can even grind the corase flour remaining and then sieve it again(I didnt grind it as most of them were sieved fine). In a mixing bowl, add maida, butter, sesame seeds, required salt and mix it once. Then add hot water and combine.
