BROWN RICE CRISPIES
INGREDIENTS: 2 cups rice flour 2 tsps black lentil flour 1/ tsp asafoetida
4 1/ tsp carom seeds
4 1/ tsp sesame seeds
4 1/ tsp chilli powder
2 2 tbsp butter oil for deep frying
You will need a murukku mould for preparing the rice crispies.
Sift together the rice and and urad dal flour to remove debris and lumps. Melt the butter, just warm enough.
Mix all the dry ingredients along with the butter in a bowl. Form a stiff dough adding little water. Fix the 1 star attachment to the murukku maker.
Grease the inside of the murukku maker. Put the dough inside the murukku maker (the part with the hole). Place the plunger to press the dough through the hole. Grease a holed ladle or slotted ladle Pipe the dough in a circular motion to make a spiral form on the ladle.
Make atleast 2-3 spirals. If not, simply make a free form lattice pattern or a lacy web.
Heat oil in a deep pan. With care, topple the spirals from the ladle to the hot oil. Cook on medium flame. Fry the murukku till it floats on top and both sides are evenly cooked or till brownish golden and crispy, flipping atleast once.
