1/2 cup fried gram dal / pottukadalai

Add in the sesame seeds and the butter. Add in water little by little and knead to form a soft yet pliable dough. The dough should be smooth and there should not be any cracks in the dough.

Form small logs and fill in the murukku press. I used the three hole mould for this murukku. Heat oil until hot. Press the murukku dough from murukku press on a ladle and use the ladle to gently drop the murukku in hot oil. Remove the murukkus from oil once the bubbles in the oil settles down.
