Cashew Murukku Recipe | Mundhiri Murukku | Diwali Murukku Recipes | Diwali Special Snacks

Hope everyone is busy with the Diwali preparations, I am very much excited to try new Diwali snacks. The blogger in me has brought so many changes in my life and even in my wild dreams, I never thought that I will make snacks at home. I usually don't make snacks apart from regular cooking and Diwali is the time for us to relish some snacks. Both Jany and Happy doesn't prefer sweets and hence I have not tried many sweets this year. If it is murukku or any other savoury snacks, then no complaints and everything will vanish in no time. I tried this recipe from Rak's Kitchen and it came out very well. Check out my Diwali recipe collection here. Also, please check out my other murukku recipes mentioned below too:
Ingredients:
Roasted Rice flour - 1 cup
Cashew Nuts - 15
Sesame seeds - 1 & 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1 generous pinch
Ghee/Butter - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as required 
Oil - for deep frying
Method:
1. Soak the cashew nuts in a little water for 15 mins and then grind it to a smooth paste along with the water. In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients(flour, sesame seeds, asafoetida, salt and ghee)
2. Along with this add the ground cashew paste and mix it all together. The dough will be crumbly now.
3. Add water little by little and make a smooth non-sticky dough. Use the single hole star plate and fill the murukku press with the dough. Make small tiny murukku as shown below. (I made the murukku in aluminium foil and carefully transferred it to oil using my hands)
4. Heat oil in a kadai and fry the murukku in batches. Make sure to fry it in medium flame and flip the sides to cook. Drain the murukku from the oil and spread it in kitchen tissue to remove excess oil.
Cool and transfer it to an airtight container. Serve it along with evening coffee/tea.
Points to remember:
  • I used store brought Idiyappam flour for this recipe. You can use any roasted fine rice flour.
  • I used star mullu murukku press. You can use any plate of your choice.
  • You can replace the cashews with the same quantity of soaked and peeled badams(Almonds). 
Warm Regards,
Happy's Cook - Divya
