Pottukadalai/Roasted gram Murukku

I had a sudden craving for snack today. Not willing to invest much time to prepare a snack, I was thinking of a recipe which requires very less time. now coming to the recipe, this one is easy and can be done in short time. The number of ingredients you need is also less.

Rice flour - 1 cup
Roasted gram - 1/3 cup
Oil / butter - 2 tbsp
Jeera - 1 tbsp
Hot water - as needed
Salt - to taste
Oil to deep fry


1. Grind the roasted gram to a fine powder.
2. In a broad vessel, take the rice flour, the gram powder, salt, jeera and oil and mix well.
3. By adding the hot water, mix and make it into a lump free dough.
4. Take the idiappam maker, change the mould to any shape you want. I used the star shape one.
5. Fill the maker with dough and start pressing the dough on the back of laddle or on a plastic cover.
6. Heat the oil and start dropping the dough into oil and cook on either side till it becomes golden color.
7. Drain on a paper towel and store in a air tight container once cooled.

Keep the remaining dough covered with wet cloth as it tends to get dry.
