Sago Muruku (Saggubiyyam Janthikalu)


I have tried one more muruku from the book, Kantamani Vantakalu...Sago Muruku...another crispy and tasty muruku...


What you need:

Rice flour-2 cups
Finely powdered sago -1 cup
Ajwain-1 teaspoon
Red chilli powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Salt-1 teaspoon
Sesame seeds-1 tablespoon
Hot oil or ghee-2 tablespoons
Oil for deep fry



How to make:

Grind sago into a fine powder (In my mixer I couldn’t make a fine powder). Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients and make a dough. Heat the oil and press the muruku into the oil by using a muruku press. According to the writer, use star shaped plate which takes a longer time to fry. Fry them until they turn brown in colour on both sides. Transfer them onto a paper towel and store them in an air tight container…
