Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights that is celebrated four days, which literally illuminates the country with lights and crackers.Everyone enjoys this festival of lights by lighting up the houses, wearing new clothes and cooking a lot of savoury and sweet dishes for the family.
The theme for this event has been suggested by my talented friend Rupal Patel, who lives in Texas with her family and blogs some amazing recipes in her Blog www.goodfoodgoodmoodbyrupal.blogspot.in where you can have access to some of the most amazing recipes.
This year to celebrate Diwali, I have made Multigrain Potato Murukku. This is an instant recipe.
Recipe for Multigrain Potato Murukku :
250 Gms Rice Flour
2 Medium size potatoes boiled
1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
150 Gms Multi grain Powder( roasted quinoq, chia seeds,flax seeds and green gram powder)
Salt to Taste
Oil for Frying.
Boil the potatoes and mash them well. Ensure there are no lumps. Mix Rice flour, Mashed potato, red chilli powder.multigrain powder and salt. Add 1.5 tbsp of sizzling hot oil. Mix well. Add enough water to form a nice soft dough.
Grease the murukku press with little oil and then fill the dough and start pressing.Heat the oil , check by adding a pinch of dough and if it raises immediately, then the oil is ready.Now carefully flip over the murukkus and deep fry.Turn over and cook.Deep fry till it is slightly brown .Repeat this process until the entire dough finishes.Place them on a tissue paper.
Once it cools store them in an airtight container.
Enjoy the Crispy Murrukus!!!!
