Mixed Dal Muruku ~ Deepavali Savories!

I know you must be wondering why I am still talking about Deepavali? Well naturally after making few new snacks, I can't resist not talking about them right. Especially when they are my favorite snacks. I am sure Murukus are favorites for most.

I was particular that I learn couple of snacks this time. So asked Amma to think of new dishes that she can teach me. This Mixed dal murukus are one of them. Amma made so much as she had to share with the neighbors. She had started on the first batch by the time I came in. So I ended up making only the rest of the batch.

Murukus came out so well, and I was really happy that kids liked it very much. This infact was Konda's snacks for 3 days!

Before I jump to the muruku recipe, sweeten yourself with this Banana Halwa!

Mixed Dal Murukus:

Please read the process I followed for making murukus from this Muruku post!

Raw Rice - 3 cups (600 gms)
Bengal gram - 75 gms
Urad Dal - 50 gms
Split yellow moong dal - 75 gms
Butter - 100 gms
Water as required to knead

For Seasoning

Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Asafetida/ Hing - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

Oil for deep frying


Method to prepare:

Wash and drain the rice. Shade dry the Rice for 1/2 hr. Dry roast all the dals to light brown. Allow it to cool.

Grind the rice to a fine powder followed by all the dals.

In a wide vessel, take all the flours along with salt. Mix well. Add cumin, Sesame seeds to the flour, mix well.

Whether you use Asafetida powder or the solid ones, you got to mix it in water, make sure it is dissolved before adding to the flour. If its not dissolved properly, when deep frying the muruku, there are chances for the hing to burst our due to air bubbles.

Mix in the hing to the flour and finally add the butter. Gather everything well and you will get more of a crumbling mixture. Now slowly add water and knead a dough which is little more softer than the puri dough.

Heat a kadai with oil enough to deep fry. Once the oil is hot enough, simmer to low flame.

Take the Muruku Aachu, wash and wipe it clean. Then divide the dough into equal balls. Fill the Muruku maker with the dough. You can either press it directly over the flames or press over a paper or slotted spoon and gently slide it down the hot oil. But since the quantity mentioned here is less, you can press it directly over the kadai.

Cook over medium flame, using a slotted spoon, turn it over to other side to ensure both sides turn golden colour. You will know by seeing the colour that its cooked. Remove to a kitchen paper and store it in a air tight container.

Happy munching!
