Split Roasted Gram Dal murukku is a tasty crunchy snack to be enjoyed at home as an evening tea time snack.
1 cup rice flour
1/4 cup fried gram dal
1/2 tbsp butter
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
water as required
Grind the fried gram to a fine powder. Now combine rice flour and roasted gram flour and sieve it.
In a mixing bowl take the sieved flours , butter, cumin seeds and salt and mix well.
Add boiled water little by little and mix it with a spatula to form a soft dough.
Grease the murukku press with little oil and fill it up with the dough. Now slowly press directly into oil or on a laddle like I did.
Heat oil and start making shapes and fry them.
Make sure it gets cooked evenly on both sides, turn over accordingly. Take it out when the colour is golden brown on both the sides.
Drain in tissue, cool down completely and then store in airtight container.
