  • Besan flour / Kadalai mavu - 1 & ½ cup

  • In a mixing bowl, take kadalai mavu (besan), rice flour, melt butter, ground paste and sesame seeds. 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.


  • You can skip garlic and make.
  • If ribbon murukku breaks while squeezing, try sprinkling more water, knead and try again.
  • Do not add more butter than mentioned, if added, it will dissolve in oil.
  • You can add hot oil in place of melt butter like I did.
  • Rice flour and besan should be fine flour. 
  • To check if oil is heated at right temperature, if you add a small pinch, then it should rise immediately.
  • Oil should not smoke , so regulate the flame now and then.
  • If making in large quantity, prepare dough in batches, otherwise, it will affect texture and colour of the ribbon murukku
