Yummy Yummy spicy rice flour rings / murukku recipe

Crispy and crunchy ring murukku is a very good accompaniment with hot tea / coffee. Its so simple and easy to make at home.

Cuisine: Indian
Serve as: Snack

Ring murukku is new to me and tasted only 2 or 3 times from shops. Its a perfect tea time snack and kids love it as it looks similar to onion rings and they like to insert their finger in it and eat playfully. From kids to elders most of us enjoy these murukku by wearing this in our fingers.

We can make this yummy snack using store bought rice flour or home made rice flour. My advice is to use Home Made Rice Flour.

Prep: 25 minutes

  • Rice Flour - 1 cup
  • 1 cup – Rice flour
    • Oil for deep frying
    • 1 tsp – Oil (for kneading)
    • Salt to taste
    • 1 pinch – Asafoetida
    • 1 tsp – Cumin seeds
    • 1 tsp – White sesame seeds
    • 1 tsp – Red chilli powder
    • 1 tbsp – Butter
    • 1 1/2 tbsp – Split yellow gram / Moong dal

Preparation method

  1. Wash and soak split yellow gram in enough water for atleast 1 hour or until well soaked. Drain water completely and keep aside.
  2. Heat 1 cup of water in a vessel or wide pan and bring it to boil. Add soaked split yellow gram / moong dal, butter and required salt to it, mix well. Immediately add rice flour and quickly mix well. Switch off the flame, cover with lid and keep it aside.
  3. Allow rice flour dough to cool completely, then add sesame seeds, cumin seeds and red chilli powder to it. Mix well to form soft and smooth dough. Finally add a tsp of oil to the dough and knead the dough once again.
  4. Take a small sized dough, roll it to lengthy threads (as shown in picture) and join the edges. Press slightly to form a ring shape.

  5. Heat oil in a frying pan, when the oil is very hot, drop the murukku in batches and fry until both sides of the murukku are evenly brown and crispy.
