Another Diwali delight that is very addictive. Anything deep fried is addictive right? . My kids have different levels of tolerance to spiciness. My boy loves hot spicy stuff and wanted the spicy karasev for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My little one on the other hand had nothing to do with it and loved these fritters that have no spice, but a ton of flavor. You can make small swirls like this or directly press the murukku maker over the oil. Either way the taste is going to be the same. This method needs some extra time to form the swirls and then transferring them safely to oil. I was able to scoop each up gently with my ladle and drop them in. Whichever method you choose to do please be very careful when dealing with hot oil. Off to the recipe.
Deep fried fritters.
- rice flour - 1 1/2 cups
- besan - 1/4 cup
- pottukadalai - 2 tsp (powdered)
- butter - 2 tsp
- salt - to taste
- oil - to deep fry
Mix all ingredients except oil. Using water form a stiff dough.
You can either make small murukkus or directly press the murukku maker over oil and form couple of circles.
Heat oil and deep fry the murukkus. These tend to be on the whiter side. Dont wait for it to turn brown :). Drain on paper towels and allow to cool. Store in air tight containers once cooled.
