A Short Description About Tamil Recipe Kai Murukku:
Out of Tamil Nadu Savory Recipes - the Tamil Recipe Kai Murukku is one of the best in Snacks and Savory Varieties. Making Kai Murukku is an art. In Tamilian Household they make Kai Murrukku for Tamil Festivals like Krishna Jayanthi, for Weddings and also for Baby shower.
In Tamil Weddings they prepare plate sized murukkus and kept as 'Seer' where they called it as 'Seer Murukku' or 'Kai Suthu Murukku' - Kai (hands) suthu (roll/swirls/twisted) Murukku. They will wrote the names of the bride and bridegroom on top of the murukku. They send off the guest with a 'Tamboolam bag' which contains Tamil Recipe Kai Murukku along with beetal leaves and a sweet savory.
In most of the houses they prepare Tamil Recipe Kai Murruku with a combination of Rice flour and Urad dal flour. But I have made a slight variation in it and have used Roasted gram Flour which is evern more tastier than when compared with Urad dal flour. Here is the recipe.
