Ribbon murukku is a crispy South Indian snack made with rice flour, besan (chickpea flour). This is special with garlic flavour and add red chillies to spice up. Perfect tea time snack.
Wishing all my readers a 🎄Merry Christmas🎄
I thought I will post something like last year, but couldn’t. So posting at least a snack today that I made for snack. I have been always making ribbon murukku with pepper. But few months back when someone reminded me exactly how my mom makes the ribbon murukku. Red chillies ground and added, you can see tiny flakes here and there that while eating adds a nice flavour and spicy spike. She doesn’t add garlic, but lots of asafoetida (perungayam) and with lots of besan than rice flour.
I added equal proportions of rice flour and besan (kadalai mavu) but FIL suggested to add more of besan than rice flour. I am going to try that next time, though pressing would be bit difficult.
I am not using internet much, so bear with me, I will sure answer your queries.

- Grind peeled garlic and red chilli in a mixer, add little water later, along with salt, asafoetida and grind until garlic gets ground smooth.
- In a mixing bowl, take kadalai mavu (besan), rice flour, melt butter, ground paste. Mix well.
- Make a dough without any cracks. Fit the murukku press with ribbon murukku plate. Fill with prepared dough.
- Heat oil in kadai. When hot, press as a single layer without overcrowding the oil. When the bubble sound reduces, flip and cook in medium or low flame until the sound reduces and bubbles also ceases.
- Drain in paper towel, repeat to finish the dough.
Once cooled down, keep in an airtight container.
