Another Christmas creation that I remember fondly from my childhood. I absolutely loved this snack. The only thing I didn’t like about it growing up was how time consuming it was to prepare. Mom used to mix a few dals and rice and then clean them up, grind them and make the dough for murukku. Well, I found the easiest ever method and tell you what, this snack doesn’t last for more than 2 days in my house! I made about 30 spirals and poof, they vanished into thin air so fast!(purely hypothetical!).

1-1/2 cups rice flour
½ cup besan
Salt as required
¼ cup oil and more for frying
¼ cup sesame seeds
2-3 tbsp Indian red chili powder
Water as required

How to:
Make dough by mixing all the ingredients.
Dough should be a  bit harder than Chapati dough.
Heat up the oil to 350° F in a deep sauce pot.
Make murukku using the special murukku press on parchment paper while the oil heats up.
Deep fry till golden.
