Easy Moong Dhal Murukku / Pasiparuppu Murukku is a cripsy Indian snack made during diwali and krishna jayanthi. Serve them with hot tea or coffee.
  • 1 Cup of Rice Flour (Store-bought)
  • ¼ Cup of Yellow Moong Dal
  • 1 Tsp of Cumin (Jeera)
  • 1 Tbsp of Butter
  • Pinch of Asafoetida (Hing)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to deep fry
  1. Soak the moong dal in water for 20 mins. Wash it and add it to pressure cooker, cook it for 3 whistles by adding 1 cup of water. After the steam releases, mash the dal and keep it aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add rice flour, cooked moong dal, cumin, butter, asafoetida and salt. Mix well with hand to form a smooth dough. Sprinkle some water if needed.
  3. Heat oil in a pan. Meanwhile, grease the inner part of murukku press with oil and use star template( the one we use it for mullu murukku). Add the dough into the murukku press and close it tightly.
  4. Now carefully press it directly into the hot oil, cook both the sides of murukku till Ssh sound stops.
  5. Remove it from oil and drain this in a paper towel (tissue paper)
  6. Hot, crispy moong dal murukku is ready to serve with hot tea or coffee.
Add sesame seeds (black or white) in place of cumin or add both.
If you want spicy murukku, add red chilly powder. This is optional.
If you don't have butter, add hot oil to the dough.
I didn't add water while kneading the dough as moong dal water is enough to knead it.
You can use any murukku template of your choice.
