Cashew pepper murukku | mundiri murukku, i first tasted in my friend's in-laws place. Few years back when i visited my friend's mil's house,(from whom i learnt Kalyana rasam)in Chennai, she made cashew murukku and thengai burfi for me. She was excitingly shared with me that she learnt this mundiri murukku from a TV show and tried it at home. It tasted awesome and i happily ate the murukku.

Notes:
  1. Do not make the dough in bulk as it will spoil the taste of the murukku.
  2. I used home made rice flour, you can use store bought rice flour too. 
  3. You can replace cashew nuts with almonds too. 
  4. Adding pepper powder is optional, you can make it plain cashew murukku or you can add red chili powder too.
  5. I used freshly ground pepper powder. You can use store bought pepper powder too.
