Aval murukku

Aval murukku recipe | Instant poha chakli – Easy and tasty murukku recipe using poha | aval | rice flakes. Aval murukku for Krishna jayanthi | diwali, recipe with full video and step-by-step instructions.

Apart from Uppu seedai and vella seedai we make Murukku for Krishna Jayanthi | Janmashtami | Gokulashtami. I have posted many varieties of murukku. Aval murukku I want to try for the past 2 years, but finally, I tried this time. I adapted the recipe from Chitra’s food book. The murukku turned out very crisp and we all really enjoyed it.

Murukku is a very popular snack, we make for Diwali, Janmashtami, and many times for tea time snacks too. During our childhood days, my grandmother makes Thenkuzhal, mullu murukku, ribbon pakoda, seedai at home and always keep one or the other in stock. We never had the concept of buying from the outside.

Coming to this Aval murukku, adding aval | poha and pottukadalai, makes the murukku very crisp.

Why Murukku is murukku hard

If butter or hot oil is not added to the dough, it will make the murukku hard.

Why is murukku not crispy?

If it is fried in low-temperature oil or taken out early, before the oil sound subsides, Murukku will not be crispy.

Why is murukku breaking in oil

If the murukku dough is too tight, the murukku will not hold the shape. Also if the rice flour is coarse, then it will not hold the shape.
