Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 12 murukku


  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup besan
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ajwain
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric optional
  • 1 pinch asafoetida
  • Salt as needed
  • Oil to deep fry


  • Take besan, rice flour, asafoetida, turmeric, pepper, butter, salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Pour warm/ hot oil to it. Mix well. Add water and make a soft dough.
  • Use murukku press with star shape holes to make chakli/ besan murukku.
  • I usually grease several ladles and squeeze murukku over it. Later transfer it to oil.
  • Heat oil, once hot, carefully transfer the murukku to it.
  • Deep fry until the bubble sound reduce. Flip and cook in medium to long flame until the bubbles ceases.
  • Drain in paper towel and repeat to finish.



  • Besan murukku takes time to cook, so make sure to deep fry in low heat for long time to ensure crispy from inside.
  • Use small size holes for best results. If it is thick, it tends to cook for long time which affects the crispiness.
