Chakkuli or Murukku is one of my favorite snacks. My mom always prepares this snack whenever we visit her place. Me and my children love this chakkuli like anything. Sweets and Snacks are integral part of any festival. Some sweets are fixed for a particular festival too. As part of Diwali celebrations I prepared chakkuli or murukku at my home along with regular sweet “yelappa” this time. There are many variations in doing these chakkulies.This is the easiest of all. Posting the easy chakli recipe for you. “WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND SAFE DIWALI 2012“.
The only word that comes to my mind when I say murukku is YUM. This rocking delicious, crispy murukku has always been a favourite snack of mine. My way of eating this snack is essentially as a side with rice-rasam but it never even fails to satisfy my cravings as a tea time snack.
This method of making murukku is from my mother’s recipe box which is foolproof if followed as instructed. No lengthy procedures of making rice powder as in traditional murukku, you can very well use store bought rice powder and achieve the best end product. Coconut and cumin seeds do enhance the flavor of murukku, so do not skip them though they are optional in the ingredient list.
