Maida Murukku

Maida Murukku is my mom’s specialty and I always ask her to make this rather than the usual murukku. In my school days, I used to help her in making this murukku. Its very simple when compared to the regular murukku which requires a lot of effort like preparing rice flour and urad dhal flour. All of a sudden, felt like having murukku. Instantly ringed my mom, got the recipe from her and made this in an hours time. It came out very crispy and tasty and we both really liked it.
