This is the another variation of murukku made with potatoes, chutney dal and rice flour. It might be possible for the dough to break while pressing on the hot oil but I never care b'cuz my family loves the taste of this murukku.
Potatoes - 2 (medium-boiled)
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Chutney dal/pottukadalai - 1/2 cup powdered
Onion - 1 (medium)
Butter - 1 tsp.
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp.
Asafoetida - 2 pinches
Oil (for deep frying)
Cut the onions into pieces and make them into paste.
Peel the skin and mash the potatoes without any lumps.
In a bowl add the sifted rice flour, chutney dal powder and salt.
Add the asafoetida, mashed potatoes, cumin seeds, onion paste & butter and mix well.
If required, add little water and knead it into a dough.
Take a small size dough and drop it in the murukku presser with star shaped hole in the disc.
Now press the dough on the medium hot oil.
As you're adding potatoes and onion, you should adjust the heat low and medium flame or you get a very dark murukku.
Cook on both the sides and enjoy the murukkus.
