How to make Kambu Murukku Recipe

  1. To begin making the Kambu Murukku Recipe, firstly add Bajra Flour and Whole Wheat Flour in a mixing bowl. Add Salt to taste, Kalonji Seeds, Green Chilli paste, Garlic paste and Butter. Mix everything well and it will look like a coarse slightly sticky mixture. 

  2. Once it is done, add in the curd and mix it again. Now, slowly add in the water and knead it for 5 to 7 minutes until everything comes together. Now add 1 teaspoon oil and knead again for a minute.

  3. Grease the Murukku maker with oil properly. Now add in the murukku mixture and make small small murukkus. Press the outer layer towards the inner layer to seal it, so that the murukku does not open while frying. Keep it aside. 

  4. Next, heat the required oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Once the oil is hot, add in the murukkus one by one and fry on medium heat until they turn crispy and golden brown in colour.

  5. Once done, take them out on a kitchen towel to soak in the excess oil from the murukku. Your murukkus are ready to be served.

  6. Serve Kambu Murukku Recipe along with Masala Tea or Filter Coffee for your evening snacks.
