anyhow it came out too hard .Didn't liked the recepie.
There could be two possibilities why yours came out hard.
You did not seive the flours properly. And if you did, the quality of your flours probably required a little more butter and water to make the dough. The dough was probably too stiff and the lack of moisture made it hard. --DK
It turned out really well. My little girl loved it.Thank you soo much. All the dishes which seem so complicated is made
so simple by you.
Its a spice. Skip it.Won't harm the recipe --DK
Its just for the texture, but if you don't have butter, you can use ghee. Will add in that to the Tips section. Happy Diwali --DK
Yes. Its 2 tsp only :) Happy Diwali --DK
In any Indian Grocery store. Popular Brand for it is LG --DK
Will post it next time I make it Raji :) --DK
I think its the quality of Urad flour. Mostly rice flour - even store bought works out alright - but urad flour if not ground smooth or if it has debris tends to pose a problem. Try with another batch urad flour and if it repeats, then it mostly it. Did u use store bought or home made? If home made, grind it to smooth powder and sift it if necc.
I tend to use store bought rice flour only :) It works perfectly for me.
Your choice totally :)
Did u search the site? Its already there here http://chefinyou.com/2007/11/ribbon-murukku/
I have personally never tried it that way. I usually prepare the dough only when I need it - its quite simple. But well, you can try
I am glad you liked them Aarthi :) Thanks for letting me know --DK
Dear Vinaya, I am glad that you liked the recipe and it was useful. Thanks for your feedback :) And sure, adding a link would be wonderful.
Hi Ambika, for some reason your comment went into spam, hence the delay in answering your query. Apologise for the same. Well the purpose of adding Urad dal is multiple - for adding softness, for adding color, for taste. It also helps to add a little to the crunchiness! But mostly I think it is what helps the melting of the murukkus in the mouth along with butter. I find that for my tastes 2 tsp is sufficient. It was also what my mother made - you can of course increase the qty a little bit and check out if it suits your palate better since we all have such different tastes. Hope this helps :)-- DK
Thanks Vidhya :) I am always trying to see if I can get shortcuts for a long recipe - I am glad this is helping you too :) -- DK
Hi Mary, thanks for your kind feedback. Yes, you can increase other flavoring of your choice - we all have so many myriad taste preferences and this recipe can be easily made to accommodate those. I am glad it worked perfect for you and I appreciate you taking time to let me know the same. :) --DK
Dear Lavanya, I am glad to hear that Murukkus came out very well for you :) Thanks for your words of appreciation and feedback. Hopefully I live up to them always :) Happy Diwali :)---DK
About the kids stuff - I wonder about that too! I actually don't know what they will think like the way I thought about my mom! My mom actually made lots of home made stuff unlike me ;) LOL As for coming to my place - you are more than welcome! I have like 2 leftover for you and its been eyed closely - any time someone is going to say "Hey Look there" and while everyone's looking, they are going take it and eat..hehehe But I promise to save it for you provided you bring those yummiest looking Pav Bhaji's for me :) :)
Thanks for your sweet comment. I am glad you like what you see :)
