Try this murukku for Diwali 2014, i am sure everyone will be impressed by the taste of this murukku. I got this recipe from my friend’s mother in law. I noted it down long back in my old notebook and happened to see this during navaratri. Check out my other diwali snacks recipes

  • Drain in a kitchen towel. Crispy murukkus are ready.


  • Store in a airtight container and enjoy the murukkus.


  1. Actually in the original recipe aunty told to add green chili paste. If felt that it will be too hot and so added red chilli.
  2. Do not worry about the sago will get struck to the holes in the achu. It will come smoothly.
  3. Just mash it nicely with your hands before adding the flour.
  4. As yogurt is added you can add little more chilli powder also.
  5. If the sagois not soaked properly it will burst in oil. Ensure it is soft

  1. Hi, I tried this interesting recipe. The taste was awesome.
    I had issue with sago bursting in the oil. Any idea how to reduce the bursting? I was concerned as I had a kid at home while doing this, so i kinda of stopped with one course.
