Thenkai Pal Mullu Murukku (Coconut Milk Murukku)

This is a traditional snack which my mom often prepares at home. I love this murukku especially for it's slight sweet taste. This is very easy and quick to prepare.

Ingredients :

1. Rice Flour - 2 Cups
2. Moong Dhal Flour - 1/2 Cup
3. Butter - 1/2 tbs
4. Coconut oil - 1/2 tsp (Optional)
5. Coconut Milk - 1 Cup
6. Cumin - 2 tsp
7. Sugar - 2 tsp
8. Salt - Needed Qty
9. Oil - For Frying





Procedure :

1. Mix all the ingredients except coconut milk.

2. Now, add coconut milk little by little and make a soft dough.(Dough shouldn't be loose)

3. Use single star plate in the murukku maker to press the murukku.

4. Heat, oil in a pan.

5. Press murukku in a oil greased sheet.




5. Depending on your wok size, put two or three murukkus at a time in oil.

6. Fry till crisp on medium flame. Drain excess oil on a kitchen towel.

7. Store in air-tight container.

Note: Add extra water if coconut milk is not enough for dough but take care about the consistency of the dough. It should be soft like chapathi dough.
