Cooking time : 45 minutes

1/2 cup besan (gram flour)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp red chilli powder
salt to taste
water to mix the dough

1. Mix all the above ingredients in a big bowl except water, prepare dough adding water gradually. Dough should not be too stiff.

2. Take a small amount of dough, keep in muruku machine, press gently in hot oil, deep fry them and remove into a paper towel.

3. Crunchy and delicious murukus will be ready to serve.

  1. I like the rice and besan combo too. Rice and Urad dal is little harder to press out!:))

  3. I don't have a murukku press but i think i should try to make with my cookie presser.

  22. Thanks for posting your version Jyothi.
    Some urad dhal flour will add to the smell and taste.. Rice and Besan is a nice combo.

  23. mmm..muruku is my favourite snack !
    For a long time i was searching for the muruku press in indian stores..but finally I found Maruti Kitchen Press, on this web site http://www.perfectpeninsula.com

    You need a right tool to make muruku. The job was done like a breeze, just with one hand ! It was so easy to press.
    Wwhen compared to the conventional tool made out of wood or aluminium - you need two hand and have to press very hard and it becomes very difficult to make when the oil is hot :(

    It also came with a Recipe book with lots of unique snack varieties ! For more info, go to http://www.perfectpeninsula.com/KitchenPress.html

    I hope this would be more useful link, for bloggers who are looking for to buy one !
