Ring Murukku

When this month’s Indian Cooking challenge was announced as Ring Murukku I was quite delighted as it happens to be my kids favourite which is also very easy to make. This is my MIL’s version of the same ring murukku. Though I used to do this with yellow gram this version seemed much easier and there didn’t seem very difference in taste



Rice flour – 1 cup
Roasted gram dal powder – 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
White sesame seeds – ½ tsp (optional)
Salt – to taste
Ghee – 1 tsp
Water – as needed
Oil – for deep frying.


Take around 2 tbsp of rice flour and in a bowl and melted ghee to it. Mix it well to creamy paste. Now add the remaining rice flour and the roasted gram dal powder and mix it with your finger tips to resemble a crumble. Add the cumin seeds, sesame seeds and salt. Mix well. Now add water little by little to form a soft dough. Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying.

Roll out thick string from the dough with the help of your hands. Just bring the ends together and press them so that they resemble a ring. Leave this work to the kids and they are supposed to have a field day. Deep fry them in oil but have patience while doing so and fry them over medium flame so that they get cooked till the centre.

This is off to the Indian Cooking challenge.
