Aval Murukku Recipe / Instant Poha Chakli - Krishna Jayanthi Recipes

Aval Murukku
Aval Murukku is a very easy murukku recipe that you can make for this Krishna Jayanthi(Gokulashtami).Aval / Poha and Butter are Krishnas favorite and this recipe has both the ingredients.

Every time I think of a new recipe and check it with google I will be disappointed to learn that the idea/recipe is already there but yes this time I won over google as it did not show any exact match for my aval murukku.This is just my experiment and was not even sure whether it would turn out good, only after I tasted the first murukku I was convinced to post this recipe :) I made a very small batch and it was done the same day I made.Amma gave a thumbs up tasting the murukku yayy!! :)
