|BESAN | KADALAI MAAVU||1 CUP|
|RICE FLOUR |ARISI MAAVU||1 CUP|
|BLACK PEPPER||2 TSP|
|OIL||TO DEEP FRY|
- Sieve both the flour ( besan and rice flour ) together for even mixing.
- Add salt and add the softened butter.
- Pound the black pepper in a mortar and pestle or a mixer coarsely.
- Mix it well and knead it into a pliable soft dough by adding water to this slowly.
- Do not add too much water and do not make it too stiff also.
- Heat oil in a deep pan. Check the oil by dropping a small piece of dough into the oil. When it comes up immediately then the oil is in the right consistency.
- Take a small of dough and press it into a murukku presser using the thenkuzhal achu.
- Do not over do. Just make 2 rounds.
- Flip this after few minutes.
- When the oil sound sizzles take it out from the oil and drain the excess oil in a kitchen towel.
- Repeat this for the rest of the dough.
- When it is cool , break them into small pieces and enjoy karasev with hot coffee as we did.
- You can add 1 tsp of black pepper and 1/2 tsp of red chilli powder.
- Do not add too much butter as it will make the karasev break while making itself.
- Instead of butter hot oil can also be added.
- If you want to add garlic, just pound this nicely with black pepper.
- Do not make the black pepper slightly big. It will get stuck while pressing them in the achhu.
