Recipe courtesy: Kamala (my Paati)

Well, this is not the authentic 'Kai muruku' which is whiter in colour and made with rice flour and urad dal flour... This is called Manugombu and a star shaped press is used to press out the muruku dough.
I am not at all artistic, so my muruku shape is not perfect:)

Ingredients:
4 cups rice flour
1 cup moong dal flour (payatham maav)-green gram flour
salt to taste
hing 4 dashes
1 tsp jeera (cumin) / sesame seeds
3 tbsp ghee/butter

Heat sufficient oil in a deep fryer.
Mix all the above ingredients dry first. Slowly add water and bring it to a smooth dough consistency (smoother than a chappati dough).
Press through star plate in the press set and make small murukus on plastic sheets
Deep fry these murukus in the hot oil till golden crisp on both sides!
Preserve in airtight containers and enjoy!

Tips:
Don't have moong dal flour at home?? Hate taking so much effort?? Go to the nearest Indian store, buy MTR Muruku mix. Add 3 tbsp butter and 1 tsp jeera to the mix. Add sufficient water and press the dough through the star press. Make small murukus. Fry in hot oil till crisp on both sides. Enjoy!
