Rice flour – 2 cups

Asafoetida – 1/4 tbsp

Cumin seeds – 1 & 1/2 tbsp

Salt – As needed

Water – As needed

To Grind

Potato – 1

Butter – 1/4 cup (Measured melted)

water – 2 tbsp


Cook potato, cool down well, remove away its skin and grind with butter and water to a smooth paste. Combine the rice flour, cumin, asafoetida and salt well.

Now add ground paste and needed water so that you can get a non sticky dough. Keep it covered for few mins.

You can use murukku press with the plate and with three round hole. You can also try the star hole plate too.

Heat oil into a heavy bottomed pan,in between press for 3-4 murukkus at the greased broad ladles 

When the oil is well enough(if u add up a pinch of dough it well  and rise immediately-do not let the oil fume at any point),drop up the murukku one by one carefully. Put them into fire in medium flame.

After bubbles reduces well (a minute or so) turn away the murukkus(you can put the flame high at this point). Cook on both sides untill the bubbles and the cooking sound ceases.

Drain away murukkus in kitchen towels.
