Now.... my college of Indian ethnicity got a shock when I showed her my ribbon pakodas. To her pakodas don't look like this, hehehe. And even my omapodi that I posted on Monday, she told me omapodi here is usually made much thicker. After some discussion with her... even murukkus are different. We love adding coconut milk to the dough. Hahaha. But it's not common in India.
My murukku press has the right disc for this snack, and so, what am I waiting for, I should try making this!
With the press, it's pretty much a breeze to make and fry. Less than 15 minutes and I'm all done!
I put in less chilli powder because I was worried about my kids, but with this amount, they complained not even a bit.
120gm rice flour
30gm chickpea flour
1/2 tsp chilli powder or more
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/2 Tbsp butter
1. Mix asafoetida with water. Strain.
2. Mix dry ingredients together, make sure the chilli powder is well dispersed.
3. Put in butter and asafoetida water. Knead to form a dough.
4. Heat oil for frying on medium heat. Press the dough into the hot oil and fry until no bubbles are seen.
