Oats pottukadalai murukku is a quite interesting murukku which i came across in Priya's blog. It is very simple and easy murukku. the original recipe has added coconut milk instead of water to make the dough. Since i have already posted Thengai paal murukku for diwali, last year, ithought i will add water only. It turned out very well crispy and for a change you can try murukku with Oats and pottukadalai.  Stay tuned for more diwali recipes coming up on Jeyashri's kitchen .

  1. lovely snack.. nice innovation to murukku..

  2. if you lost thenkozhal achu can you substitute another one?

    1. You can replace with star achu, which we use for mullu murukku

  3. i am a big fan of ur blog jeyashri....have been trying a few recipes of urs.....sterday tried Badam burfi.....came out welll....today's trial was a total disaster..:( i tried oats murukku ...after making the murukku shapes just as i put them in oil to fry they just melted away into small crumbs!!!!! wat would ahve gone wrong?

    1. Mam thank you so much for the feedback.
      Reg your disaster, either you would have added more butter or little extra pottukdala. Both will make the murukku getting dissolved in oil. Even for all snacks if butter is too much it will melt in oil.

    2. Please refer the above reply.

  4. Tried this recipe.. added little chilli powder to the dough as my family likes a little bit of spice in everything..
    Came out great.. it was my first attempt at making murukku.. My family loved it!

    Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Tried with your exact measurements today and came out perfect :)

  6. Hi I HAVE made so many recipes from your blog Jeyashri and my family loved them. I was making oats pottukadalai murukku and i dont know for some reason it started splitting up into crumbs in the hot oil. How can I fix it? Please help. I need to make this for Diwali 2017.


    1. Thank you so much Indhu. Regarding your doubt, either the dough is too stiff or too loose,both ways it will break in oil. If it is getting dissolved, either you would have added extra pottukadalai or more butter. Happy diwali to you all.
