Diwali….the “festival of lights”, is one of the most important festivals for Indians. It is celebrated in high spirits by lighting diyas (lamps) , bursting crackers and sharing sweets and snacks with friends and relatives. Today i have for you all one of the common savories made during Diwali ..that’s ” Butter Murukku / Benne Murukku ” . These butter murukku are soft yet crunchy with a lovely flavour of butter . Crispy , crunchy , they are indeed very addictive that one just can’t stop munching them ….
Chakli is a savory snack that can be prepared many ways. The traditional way of making it, calls for washing , drying of rice and urad dal. Then powder it in mixer or flour mill. Uff.. so much work..Usually my mom makes this chakkuli powder and gives me every year for janmashtami . For the typical chakkuli recipe see here . I have also shared moong dal chakli and instant rava chakli . But for today i have the super easy butter or benne murukku for you all . These are usually common during Diwali as they are very easy to make , easy to distribute and usually everyone’s favorite . I am sure most of us would have grown up eating it . Now you too can make it in your kitchen and surprise your Mom and kids.. its really very easy … Unlike other chakli ‘s this doesn’t call for any shaping . Just make a dough and press directly to oil . Let they come out any shape no problem .. since they are soft .. the strands usually break while flipping in oil . Haha .. anyways end of the day … let it be any chakli we break and eat only right ? So forget about the shape . . just enjoy these delicious butter murukku . Do try them this Diwali … i m sure even a beginner will have no fuss making these butter chaklis,with this recipe in hand… here you go ….
