Soya Murukku

Murukku in any form / shape is all time favourite with kids. It is something I do very often. Anything can be done to make murukku little healthy  so that we can reduce the guilt. Well, Tried to add Soya flour so that it is more protein rich. It came out to be very crispy and tasty. I wanted to try little bit first so that if kids like it we can make it for deepavali.. For sure this one is will be one of our deepavali  snack
Idiyappam Flour - 2 cups
Soya Flour - 1/4 Cup (I used Store brought)
Butter - 3 Tablespoon
Asafoetida - 1/3 teaspoon
Sesame Seeds - 2 teaspoon
Chlli powder - 2 teaspoon
Salt and Water - As needed
Oil - For Deep Frying


In a pan with out changing its colour. Mix flours,butter (melted),oil,asafoetida,Sesame seeds, chilli powder,salt well and then add water to make a non sticky dough with no cracks.

 Heat oil in kadai (enough to deep fry the murukkus).

Fill the murukku press with this dough with murukku hole plate.                             

I normally do murukkus on tissue paper and put it in the oil one by one using hand. And when you drop murruku drop them sideway this way oil won't splutter Deep fry in medium flame.

Cook both sides till the ‘Shhh’ sound ceases and murukku turn golden in colour.

Drain in paper towel and cool down completely before storing them in airtight containers
