Murukku is one of the most popular snacks in Asia and here in Singapore is not an exception and it is even more popular and in deman during Diwali festival. It has been long been the tradition at most homes to make delicious snacks such as Murukku, along with some special Indian sweets for Diwali.
Back in the olden days, making Murukku traditionally was quite an elaborate affair. Short grain rice would be washed and allowed to dry and spread out on a clean white cloth. When dried, it would then be stone ground in small handful batches to a fine powdery flour and the same repeated for roasted Urad dal/split Black gram as well. The whole process would easily take couple of days before the actual making begins!
Now we neither have the stone grinders, nor time or the patience and probably the stamina to stone grind as well, having been so used to all the luxuries of modern life. At Munchy Murukkus, our taste encompasses using the modern day technology as well. However we add our secret recipe directly to store-bought rice and lentil flours and there you are! the awesome taste of traditional murukkus with a crunch.
