Sago Muruku for ICC

'Muruku', we call it as chakli in Maharashtra. This is favorite of everyone in our family. I also know about sabudana chakli, we prepare it as a fasting food. It is prepared with sago and boiled potato. But this sago muruku which srivalli gave as a challenge for ICC-April was very new and interesting. I tried it and in first attempt, it turned out very well. Crispy and tasty. As regular habit, I added little Ajwain into it. Thanks a lot Srivalli.







Ingredients

Rice Flour  2 cups
Besan flour  1/2 cup
Fried gram flour - 1/2 cup
Sago - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Curd - 50 gms (half of half cup)
Chile powder - 1/2 tsp or as per taste
Ajwain - 1/4 teaspoon



Special Utensil

Muruku Achu (Chakli patra)



Procedure

Soak Sago in Butter milk for 3 hrs, please ensure that you soak it enough else you may risk having the sago burst.Mix all the flour together, heat 50 gms oil, mix to the flour along with salt and chili powder and ajwain. Then add the buttermilk soaked sago slowly and knead to a chapati dough consistency . Heat oil for deep frying.In the muruku achu(Chakli patra), add the dough. I used Anjali's, it is very easy to use.Make a shape of murukku on plastic sheet. When oil heat properly deep fry it on medium flame. It should turn to golden brown. Store it in a airtight container.



Notes:
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 flour is fried channa dal that is available commercially. It is general sold as the dal, we have to powder it at home. This is also referred as chutney dal as it is used in making coconut chutney.
