Mundhiri Murukku is a variety of rice based murukkus where cashew nut is used as the liquid. This is quite a rich and tasty one to enjoy.
When I got exhausted with the many varieties I checked and against what I have posted, I decided that cashew murukku sounded very interesting.
This batch was done along with the other murukkus happened and it was the last one to get done. So you can imagine, I was totally exhausted and lack of idea really settled in very bad! On top, I felt I could make it richer by adding more butter and since it didn’t have any lentil in it, rolled out murukkus didn’t hold their shape and became bits.
However, taste wise there was no complain so you can add just enough butter to make sure your murukkus hold their shape. This is my pick for Day 5 in the BM#104 Sweets & Snacks, where for the week 3 I am doing a choice of my own with Rice based Traditional Snacks for Diwali.
