Written By Angela Steffi on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 | 3:17:00 PM

Butter Murukku / Butter Chakli Recipe is a popular diwali snack crunchy and it is an all-time favorite tea time snack and I love to have this butter murukku with a cup of filter coffee ,the specialty of this Butter murukku is when you taste it it is going to melt in your mouth. Since it is made with a mixture of rice flour and besan flour it is also called as Rice Murukku or Besan Murukku.

Serving Size     : 6 people

Cooking Time : 30 mins

2 cup

Rice flour
1 cup Besan / chickpea flour / Gram flour
3 Tbsp
1 Tbspcumin seeds or sesame seeds

Salt to taste
1 cup water (1.25 cup approximately )

Cooking Method

Step 1) Into a large mixing bowl add the rice flour then the besan, butter, salt and also add in the cumin seeds and mix it really well

Step 2) Add water don’t add too much of water at once be very careful while adding water and knead it into smooth and firm dough

Step 3) Take a good amount of the murukku dough and add it to the murukku maker

Ste 4) Fry it in oil over medium heat till it is golden and all the bubbles settles down.

Note: The temperature of Oil should not be low or very high it should be at medium temperature if it is low then the Butter chakali will not be crispy ,if the oil is too hot then it will become hard and get browned soon.

Enjoy Crunchy Butter murukku with your favorite coffee :) Happy Cooking!!!
