Easy to make Murukku with a rich flavor of Raw Peanuts

  • Naivedyam (Offering to God)
  • Traditional Recipes




Peanut Murukku, like butter murukku, this is one of the easiest and quickest Murukku we can make for any occasions or even for a simple evening. The conventional making of Ribbon Pakoda (Nada), Mullu Thenkuzhal are quite time consuming. If we have short time, we can make these Peanut Murukku quickly without much of hassle. We just need to remember to soak the raw peanuts for couple of hours.

We have to use raw peanuts for this murukku. First soak the raw peanuts and then grind it to paste and mix it with rice flour along with salt, red chili powder and hing. Instead of red chili powder, we can grind green chili along with salt and hing and add it to flour instead of red chili powder.

Also, we can use the thenkuzhal mould instead of star mould to make this murukku. The shapes might be different but the taste would be same and awesome. Always for any murkku, we need to fry the murukku in low to medium flame till all the bubble ceases and the sound of the oil is calm. If we keep the flame high, then the murukku will become dark brown outside quickly but after sometime, the murukku will be soft and not crispy.
