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, Hi, I would just like to say thank you very much for the excellent service that I have received from your company regarding my order. I was rushing on Monday to find a decent gift idea for my Dad whose Birthday was Wednesday and I stumbled upon your site. I have never used your site before and I found it very easy to use. I was also impressed with the range of products you had available and this enabled me to cherry pick some interesting items that my Dad has never tried to cook and never tasted. Most significant for me though was the fact that I placed my order around 16.30 on Monday and you still delivered it for the next day!! Because I spent over 30 standard delivery was free, and for only 1 more it arrived the day before his birthday!! This is a fantastic price, very reasonable and I would have been perfectly happy if it had arrived on Wednesday as I thought that I had missed the post for Monday. It is increasingly difficult to find a firm that will meet basic levels of customer service, but when I find one that exceeds them I am genuinely excited and so I had to pass on my thanks and congratulations for an excellent site and outstanding service. Thank you again,"
