– 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.
– Shelf life and Storage When the murukku cools, store it in an airtight container and enjoy it any time of the day.
