Rice Sabudana Muruku

My mom always made rice and urad dal muruku and it is one of my favorite snack till date. When Srivalli  posted rice and sabudana murruku for this months ICC  i was really exited to try a new version of my favorite snack . 
Rice Flour   -  1 cups
Besan flour  - 1/4  cup
Puttukadala/Fried Gram flour - 1/4 cup
Sago - 1/4 cup

Salt to taste
Curd - 25 gms / 2 tbsp + 2 tbsp water
Chile powder - 2  tsp or as per taste

1. Soak sabudana in  curd  for 3 hrs.
2. Mix all the flours, chilli and salt together.
3. Heat 50 gms oil(about 1/4 cup) and add to flour mixture.
4. Add the buttermilk soaked sago slowly.
5. Knead to a roti dough consistency adding water as required.
6. Keep a deep pan on heat and fill half of the vessel with oil.

7. Fill  muruku press with dough.
8. Form the desired shape on an oiled cookie sheet/plate.
9. When oil heats to 340 F ,drop  a few muruku one  at a time into the oil.
10. Cook on both sides till golden on medium flame.

  •  If you don't have murruku press try cookie press with a piping nozzle.
  • I used food processor to make dough.
  •  Ensure sago soaks in buttermilk well and is soft or else it will burst  when you press it down in hot oil.
  • Cook on medium to ensure even cooking.
  • Fried Gram (Chutney dal) flour is made from fried channa dal that is available commercially.
