Thread Murukku

The Days are getting really cold..... The nights even colder... and we are practically living on coffee, coffee and more coffee.... These are not the authentic murukku nor is it the Om podi... Its some crisp crunchy spicy murukku that can finish in half an hour. (I meant cooking and eating !;)

Besan Flour - 1cup
Rice Flour - 1/2cup
Chilli Powder - 1tsp (As per your taste, I made it spicy)
Asafoetida - 1/4tsp
Garam Masala - 1tsp

Cooking Method
Mix all the ingrediants in a mixing bowl along with water. Make it like chapathi dough but softer.

Heat oil in a Kadai. Take some dough in the murukku press use the one with small holes.

When oil is piping hot, reduce the flame and press the dough directly into the oil.

Fry till crisp.

Eat it hot with a cup of coffee ;)
