Rice flour - 2 cups
Urad flour - 2 tbsps
Asafoetida - a pinch
Butter - 2 tbsps (melted)
Salt - to taste
Sieve rice flour and urad flour to remove impurities.
Mix rice flour, urad flour, melted butter, salt and asafoetida in a bowl. Add watter little by little and mix it well until it forms into a thick ball.
In a clean white cotton cloth, sprinkle water and take a portion of the batter and twist it into the shape of murukku. If you do not want to try with hand, you can use the murukku mould and fit the plate with star in it. Fill the mould with batter and squeeze it on the cloth in round shape.
When the murukku turns golden brown you can remove from heat. Strain it for excess oil and serve it with hot tea or coffee. Its very easy to make and it doesn't consume time.
