Achu Murukku or Rose Cookies is a sweet crunchy snack to be enjoyed at home as an evening tea time snack.
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup coconut milk
1 tsp sesame seeds(optional)
salt to taste(optional)
water as needed
oil for deep frying
Getting Mould Ready
For iron or aluminium mould it need to be soaked in rice cooked starch water overnight. Then immersed in heated oil for 5 mins, switched off and left it in
that oil overnight.
If its an non-stick mould then it can be used as such.
Extract coconut milk and keep aside.
To a mixing bowl, add maida, rice flour and powdered sugar.
Add salt and sesame seeds(both are optional).
Add the coconut milk and mix well to form a slightly thin batter and set aside.
Now heat oil, dip the mould in it till its heated at least for 15 seconds. Then immediately dip the mould in the batter so that 3/4th of mould is immersed in
the batter. The batter will stick to the mould.
Now carefully dip the mould in preheated oil. Leave for few seconds.
Then shake the mould for the murukku to release from mould. Fry till golden.
Turn over and cook until golden on both the sides. Drain in tissue paper, cool down and store in an airtight container.
Note : Make sure to dip the mould in preheated oil each time before dipping in the batter.
