MANAKKOMBU / MULLU MURUKKU / MAGIZHAMPOO MURUKKU / MULLU THENKUZHAL

HOW TO MAKE MULLU THENKUZHAL, HOW TO MAKE MANAKKOMBU / HOW TO MAKE MULLU MURUKKU / HOW TO MAKE MAGIZHAMPOO MURUKKURecipe courtesy: My mom.
My mom is an expert in making this and our family's all time favourite of hers is manakkombu.

INGREDIENTS:

Raw rice - 4 cups
Moong dhal - 1 cup
Butter - 100 gms.
Cumin seeds - 2 tsp.
Hing
Salt - as per taste
Oil - for deep frying

METHOD:

Pound together rice and moong dal in a flour mill to a fine powder.

Mix all the ingredients without water (except oil). Keep aside.

Take out a small portion, add little water and knead it to a medium-soft dough.

Heat oil in a kadai. Make balls out of the dough and place it in a three starred achu (what we call as mullu thenkuzhal achu) and press it firmly in a circular motion , directly into the oil. Flip on both sides till hissing and bubbling sound from the oil reduces.


HOW TO MAKE MANAKKOMBU / HOW TO MAKE MULLU MURUKKU / HOW TO MAKE MAGIZHAMPOO MURUKKUNOTE:

Ensure medium heat of oil.

Take out only little portions of the mixed flour and knead with water as and when required. By doing like this, it will get a beautiful colour. This applies to all the bakshanams.

  16. Hi,
    I read your post and will try it soon. However I was not able to interpret the sentence
    "Level 1 cup with raw rice and heap with moong dhal." clearly.

    Do you mean for 1 level cup of raw rice I need to add 1 heap cup of moong dal?
    Or did you mean it the other way... If you could please clarify this I will try it soon. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  17. Kala,Take a cup, fill it with rice, level it, then for the heap portion, add moong dhal. Are you clear now?

  18. Shanthi Maami,

    Murukku looks awesome! Love it!

    As for the shameful act, I think Mangayar Malar should publish your picture in the next edition and mention that the recipe was yours and that it was copied over by Aparna. I think people think that no one reads blogs and they can get away with anything.

    And Aparna - I'm sure you will be back here reading the comments - Just want to let you know that what you have done is wrong. In case you want to use anything from anybody's blog - Please ask first. You owe Shanthi Maami one.
