  9. Hot , crispy puzhangal arisi murukku is ready to eat.

You can soak red chilly along with rice for spicy taste. Otherwise add red chilly powder to the batter
If you dont have sesame seeds, add ajwain (omam) or add cumin alone. We are adding this for easy digestion.
Adding butter for crispy taste. Dont have butter, add hot oil to the dough.
If your batter is sticky, add some more fried gram dal powder to the dough and mix well.
Always cook in medium flame.
While squeezing do not make several layers in that it takes more time to cook.
