I used the murukku press with the plate with three or more round hole (i don't have three holes one if u have u can use that). You can try the star hole plate too.
Grease the murukku press with little oil,then fill the dough and start pressing.I usually press in 2 ladles and flip in oil,check by adding a pinch of dough if it raises immediately with a shh sound then the oil is ready.Now carefully flip over the prepared murukkus and deep fry.Turn over and cook.

Repeat the process till end and transfer to an air tight container.Stays good for a month.Enjoy the crispy white murukkus.


1. The dough has to be in a correct consistency,should not be sticky.

2.If the murkkus while you press gets broken,that means your dough needs more water,sprinkle more water and mix again.

3.If you make with more than two cups ,prepare the dough in batches,or else if you make in bulk and keep the dough for long time,the murukkus will turn dark in color as the time passes.

4.You can replace cumin with omam.
5.When you press the murukku,just press one layer in a spread manner, don't layer more as it will give you harder murukku and will take more time to cook.Make loose,single layered murukku.
6. you can add red chilli powder or u can skip.
