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 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!!!!

Happy Diwali!!!!

  1. Murrukus look delicious. They are a favourite for everyone at Diwali time. I have made them by adding the ready made potato powder (mash potato) but never like you. I will try your recipe next time.

  2. Potato murukku sounds so delicious and it is indeed a nice twist to our regular south indian style murukkus . The addition of Multigrain flour is a nice twist to the recipe

  3. Diwali without Murukku or Chakri is incomplete. I make some with rice flour but have not tried with potato added to the dough. Your preparation looks so tempting. I’ve yet to make murukku and may just try with potato.
