Any new version of murukku will tempt me to try immediately. I saw this version at Jey's space for this Diwali. So I bookmarked it. I have posted murukku with urad dal flour. Or with Roasted gram dal flour or Moong dal flour. But so far Bengal gram dhal flour or mix of lentil flours are not something I have tasted before. I was tempted by ingredients and mix of it. So I have decided to give it a try. I have given it to Mill to make powder (Mavvu). I felt the flour was not so fine so Wondering how it will turn out. But it came out extremely good. I have made this in few batches so you can see I have tried all kind of different shapes. My kids loved every version of it.

Adhirasam Recipe with Jaggery - Easy Diwali Recipe - Sweet Recipes - Sweets Recipe

Adhirasam is one of the specialty of my athai patti. Everytime I visit her she makes it. She always keep the dough. Whenever I ask my mum for recipe she always says the consistency (padham) is very critical. So she always asks my athai patti to make the dough. This time I told her that I wanted to do it for my blog. I did the dough with her guidance when I was in India. My mum had Mavvu arisi (raw rice which is used to make the flour) so I used it. If you don't have, use the raw rice. Also as you can see I didn't dry out in the cloth instead I just left it in the drainer for long time. It worked out too. If you aren't comfortable you can dry out on the cloth and use it. Trust me after trying out I was like it is so simple why did I ever think twice before making it. Try out and let me know
