Ragi murukku with step by step pictures.
Another millet recipe to add to my collection. As I promised in my thinnai adhirasam post, as I"m going to try millet recipes for this Diwali, I am here with the deep-fried snack. Though it s deep fried recipe considering the addition of millet I mention it healthy when compared to other rice flour snacks. Here for binding, I have used besan/kadalai mavoo, but you can also use potukadalai flour.
Lets us see how to make this muruku. You can use any presser in your murukku mold. I used 3 holed press. The murukkus were super tasty, crunchy and addictive.
