Sago / Sabudana Murukku !!!



My post for today ..slightly sour & perfectly crunchy Sago / Sabudana Murukku !!
       No festival is complete without homemade snacks ..
As the festival of kites i.e Sankranti is just two days away thought of sharing this crispy snacks to woo!! u r family n guests ..
      A perfect accompaniment for tea time and a perfect snack for the hungry baccha's on the terrace who are busy flying kites, engaged in kati patang fights and trying to eliminate the foes in the sky... :)
            

Ingredients :
Sago | sabudana 1/4 cup
     Yogurt     1/4 cup
     Rice flour   1 cup
    Red chilli powder   1 tsp
    Butter     1 tsp
    Hot oil    2 tsp
   Cumin seeds  1/2 tsp
   Asafoetida     1/8 tsp
   Oil      for deep frying 

Method:
  • Soak the sago / sabudana in yogurt for 3 hours. You need to mix it well with hands. After soaking it will be double in size.
  • In a wide bowl add the sago mixture, rice flour, chiili powder, cumin seeds, butter, hot oil,salt and asafoetida.
  • Sprinkle  water as needed and make it into a soft dough.
  • Put it into a murukku press and press it into hot oil.
  • It won’t come out as full string like sev ..but falls into oil as pieces..
  • I used the disc with 4 holes...u can use any disc with larger holes ..do not use the ones with small holes as the sabudana will not come out through it...
  • Heat oil and fry and when the oil sound subsides take them out from oil.
  • Drain them onto a paper towel ..
  • Once cooled to room temperature store it in an airtight container n enjoy till the stock lasts.. :) :)
