Maida/All purpose flour-1/2kg
White sesame seeds-2tablespoons
Water-120 to 150ml
Oil-to deep fry
Sieve the maida/all purpose flour and steam it in a steamer/idli cooker for 5 to 10 minutes or a nice aroma emanates.
The steamed flour would be a tight mass. Let it cool completely, then rub it with your fingers.
Add the omam, sesame seeds, hing and salt.
Add water little by little and knead it into a soft dough. Add 2 tablespoons of hot oil to the dough and knead it. Keep it covered.
Heat enough oil to deep fry the murukku.
Put the dough into the murukku press/chakli press and press them into circular spirals.
Take them out and keep it on the paper towel.
Wish you all a very happy Diwali!
