Ribbon pakoda

ribbon pakoda1 cup rice flour
1/4 cup gram flour/besan (kadalai mavu)
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbs Sesame seed (Ellu)
1 tbsp Butter
Oil for deep frying

1. Mix all the ingredients to form a dough. The dough should not be very loose. It will be better if it is little thick. You can prepare the muruku immediately after making the dough.
2. Place the kadai in the stove. Make sure the kadai is pretty hot and then you add the oil. This will make the murukku to absorb less oil. I follow this for all the items I deep fry. Let the oil heat well.
3. Get ready with the murukku press. Select the achu which has two rectangle shape one. Grease the inside of the press with little oil, so that the dough does not stick to it.
4. When the oil is hot enough to deep fry, press the murukku into the oil and deep fry both the sides until crisp.
5. Make sure that you take the murukku out at the right time. The color should not be dark brown or red. When you add the ingredients at right measure, you will get perfect golden color, crispy, melting muruku!
