We make varieties of murukku for Diwali snacks. Murukku is a popular Diwali recipe. We also make murukku for janmashtami too. I have posted many varieties of murukku in Jeyashris kitchen. This ellu murukku is a crispy flavourful murukku with black sesame seeds. It gives a nice taste to the murukku.

Some basic tips for beginners

Why is murukku hard

If the murukku is hard it means, oil or butter is not added in right quantity while making the dough. Always add the oil | melted butter in right quantity.

Why is murukku is not crisp

Sometimes it may be undercooked. Always put the murukku into hot oil. Once it is in the oil, keep the flame medium and cook on both sides till the oil sound subsides. If it is taken in advance, it murukku will be chewy and not crispy.

Why murukku is not retaining the shape and breaking in oil

If the dough is tight, the murukku will break in oil. Or if the flour is not soft and bit coarse, the murukku will break in oil.

If you have any doubts about making murukku, please leave it in the comment section.
