Kara Kara, Muru Muru Buttons, a crispy snack which is so simple to make with all available ingredients at home. A very easy and quick to make dish. No hassle with press and mould. Crispy buttons are made with rice flour and dals. Using homemade rice flour gives a nice texture to the dish, but we can very well use store bought rice flour. Store bought rice flour gives a little more reddish color to the dish. We even do this dish as an evening snack and enjoy with tea / Coffee. Try this simple dish for this Diwali and enjoy the snack!

Method:

  1. Take the dals in a vessel. Rinse them in water and pressure cook them allowing 3-4 whistles. We need nicely mashed dal. Once the dal is cooked, mash it nicely and keep it aside

  2. Take a mixing bowl and add rice flour, mashed dal, salt, red chilli powder, hing, grated coconut and mix well. Add water little by little and knead it to a nice and stiff dough

  3. Take a clean white towel and spread it on the floor. Make small gooseberry sized balls out of the dough place it in the towel. Using your thumb, press each ball in the middle to make it flat like a button. Do not press too much. The buttons should be small and little thick.

  4. Repeat the step for the rest of the dough. Let the buttos dry for couple of minutes in the towel. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan, when the oil is hot enough, gently add 10-12 buttons to the oil.

  5. Deep fry the buttons in low flame till they are crispy and turn to golden brown color. Keep the flame low while frying, because the buttons are little thick and hence needs more time to deep fry them.  Take the crispy buttons out of the oil and keep in paper towel to drain the excess oil. 

  6. Serve the yummy and crispy Buttons with hot coffee/ tea and enjoy!

    1. Hi Madhu, readymade flour makes the end product little hard than homemade rice flour. So you can use atleast a tablespoon of butter to make it soft.
