Murukku also known as Chakli is a savoury snack item. Its a deep fried item which can be made using a Murukku Maker. Chakli is mainly made during festivals or any special occasions but the method below is the quickest way to enjoy Murukku/Chakli with hot Tea on a wet day. As these can be stored for few weeks, this is a perfect home made snack on trips/tours ;)



Preparation Time:

15 mins

Cooking Time:

30 mins


Rice Flour - 2 Cups
  Urad Dal Flour - 2 tsp
  Butter melted - 2 tsp
  Salt - ½ tsp
  Asafoetida - ¼ tsp
  Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
  Oil for deep frying


• Mix all the ingredients using enough Water to make a smooth dough. Knead for about 5 mins, cover and keep it aside.

• Now you need a Murukku maker to press the dough into desired shape.

• A Murukku maker comes with many attachments, here I have used 1 star attachment.

• Firstly fix the 1 star aatachment to the Murukku maker. Brush some Oil on a plastic sheet.

• Take a small amount of dough and place it in the Murukku maker.

• Next place the other mould (which is used for pressing the dough) on the dough and start pressing the dough on the Oiled sheet.

• Now you can see the dough coming out as shaped from the hole. Slightly tilt and move the Murukku maker round and round while pressing so that you make a round shape.

• You can make as many spirals as you like.

• Meanwhile heat Oil in a frying pan.

• Remove these shaped Murukku from the sheet to your hand and then drop them in hot Oil.

• Fry them till golden brown and crisp.

• Let it cool and store it in air tight containers.


"Dear Spices of India, I am emailing you to let you know how happy I am after using your site for the first time to order 20 or so products and spending 30 GBP plus. I have not received the products yet as I only ordered them yesterday and I live in France so I would not expect them to arrive for another four or five days. However, using your site, your basket and checkout system was extremely simple and straightforward. Whoever designed your site gets my praise. As a very new and amateur web designer, I know how difficult even the simplest of sites can be to design and configure. Your prices are excellent and I am hoping your products will be the same. I am looking forward to receiving my order but, in the meanwhile, thank you once again for such a detailed and easy-to-use website. In this day and age, when too many people complain (or, in the case of the British, don't complain to the powers-that-be but moan to all their friends about what they weren't happy about instead of contacting the company to give them an opportunity to correct the customer's grievance) I am writing to show my appreciation. Keep up the good work and I look forward to receiving my goods. Cheers!"
