BUTTER MURUKKU - DEEP FRIED RICE FLOUR STICKS | A DIWALI RECIPE

12:40 PM




Diwali is around the corner and all i can think of are the sweets and savories that gets made during those days. I have always preferred  savory snacks over the sweet ones as a kid, but now things have changed and i have developed a liking for the sweets 😋. For every diwali i plan on making some traditional sweets but somehow  end up in making an easy and simple snack/savoury as this Butter Murukku.

Butter Murukku is fairly simple to make with minimal ingredients. This melt-in your mouth munchies are perfect for kids and can be made  any time of the day/year. This is a non-spicy murukku and the addition of cumin seeds and asafetida gives it a nice flavor.
