Kai Murruku, Its a belief of many people that it is very hard to make. I also feared the same, but when i tried it for the first time, i realized, it is not too hard to make. The only tricky part is the twisting of the rice flour. But i am sure that we could get it more proper by make it frequently. Though mine is also less accurate, still want to share this recipe to make everyone believe that kai murukku is a doable recipe. Lets all try this Puzhungal Arisi Kai Murukku (Parboiled Rice Kai Murukku) recipe and surprise our relatives and friends.

Method:
  1. Rinse the rice and soak it water for atleast 2 hours. Heat the pan, add 1/4 Cup of urid dal and dry fry it till it becomes light brown color and you will get a nice aroma . 

  2. Grind the fried urid dal in a mixer to a nice powder. Sieve the dal powder using a strainer to get a nice dal powder. If we the urid dal powder is not smooth, then the murukku may tend to burst in oil. So we need to make sure the dal powder is smooth.

  3. Drain the water from the rice after 3 hours and add it to the grinder.  Grind it without adding water initially. Then sprinkle water little by little in intervals till the batter is smooth but thick. You will be able to use a ladle to check the thickness. At the same time, if you take a drop of batter you would be able to make a ball. Now to this dough, add the urid dal powder along with salt

  4. Now mix thoroughly the dough and add 1/4 cup of hot oil and mix well

  5. Take a clean plastic cover and grease it with oil and place a water bottle lid. Now grease your hands with oil and take small quantity of dough and coat it with oil and gently rub the palms to make like a thick thread. Slowly and carefully twist the dough around the bottle lid. Repeat it for 3-4 rounds around the lid and gently remove the lid from the middle


  6. Repeat the above 2 steps and make 4-5 challis. We can also use spatula to create the chakli. First grease the spatula or small flat plate with oil and then in the middle, keep the lid of a water bottle and follow the step 5 to make twisted murukku
  7. Heat the oil in the pan, and check if the oil is hot. Drop a small amount of dough and if it raises immediately, then it is the correct consistency. Gently immerse the spatula into the hot oil and keep it still till the chakli gets little fried and gets separated from the spatula. Then we can remove the plate/spatula and then do the next. If we use plastic paper, then gently take the chaklis in hand or using a spatula and drop it at the side of the pan so that the oil will not spill.

  8. Now allow the murukku to cook till the bubbles vanishes and the chakli becomes crispy. The bubbles should completely cease and there should not be any noise in the oil. If you take the murukku earlier from the oil, the murukku will be crispier for only few hours and then become very hard to bite or becomes soggy later. So keep the flame in medium, and allow the bubbles to cease completely

  9. The delicious and wonderful kai murukku is ready. By repeated trials, we would surely get good twists in the murukku.
