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.
