Ragi Butter Murukku recipe,Murukku recipes

Ragi butter murukku| Finger millet murukku, crispy murukku using ragi| finger millet flour, perfect for Deepavali. I have tried savory recipes using ragi flour. Though they turn out crispy, somehow i feel the slight bitter taste after tasting the murukku. Even i have tried murukku using millet flour like samai, thinai and varagu. I have never tried the traditional way of making flour, using the store bought flour only. Today i tried Ragi butter murukku by adding some rice flour to it. It was very crunchy and bitter taste was not there in this murukku. I don't say it is a healthy version of murukku, as we add millet flour to this, but i am sure, it is definitely a different version to try out for this Deepavali.

  • Description: Ragi butter murukku, crispy murukku using ragi| finger millet flour, perfect for Deepavali
     Ragi flour| Finger millet flour  1/2 cup
     Rice flour  1/2 cup
     Besan | kadalai maavu   1/2 cup
    Pottu kadalai | roasted gram  1/4 cup
    Cumin seeds  1 tsp
    Salt  as needed
    Butter  2 tblsp
    Oil  for deep frying
    Asafoetida  a generous pinch 

Method :

  • Grind the pottukadalai into a fine powder. Pottukadalai is roasted gram, we use for making coconut chutney. 
  • No need to roast the pottukadalai. 
  • In a wide bowl add the rice flour, ragi flour, besan flour and pottukadalai flour.
  • Add the cumin seeds, salt and asafoetida. 
  • Add melted butter to this.
  • Mix well and add water little by little and make a soft crack free dough. 
  • I used the single star achu. 
  • Put a portion of the dough into the murukku press.
  • Heat the oil and once it becomes hot, bring the flame to medium.
  • Just squeeze it into the oil. 
  • If you want to make it as mullu murukku, squeeze it in that way.
  • Generally butter murukku in stores will be in single sticks only. 
  • For ragi murukku you can't make out whether it is done or not by looking at the color. 
  • Once the oil sound subsides and the bubbles lessen, take it out from the oil.
  • Drain the excess oil in the kitchen towel. 
  • Repeat this for rest of the dough.
  • If making in bulk, mix the dough in batches, else it will give a sour taste.
  • Murukku stays good for 10 days to 2 weeks if kept in an air tight container. 
Notes:
  1. Always use melted butter, hard butter will not mix evenly.
  2. You can add sesame seeds instead of cumin seeds for Ragi Butter Murukku.
