- Take a murukku maker and fix the ribbon pakoda making plate/disc.
- Heat oil (to test if the oil is hot, drop a small ball of dough into the oil, if it rises to the surface immediately, then the oil is hot enough to fry the murukkus)
- Put the prepared dough inside the murukku maker and press it directly into the hot oil in a circular motion.
- You will get a sizzling sound when the murukku is getting cooked.
- Flip it over to the other side and fry both sides well till golden brown.
- Use a slotted ladle to remove the murukku and drain it on a paper towel or colander.
- Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.
