Spinach Murukku

Spinach Murukku is an interesting twist to the regular murukku and makes it more healthy as we include spinach puree to the dough. This gives a beautiful green murukku.

Kids will love this green murukku and in this way they also get to include spinach in their snack. The murukku turns out very crispy and cute to look at. For a moment you might not know when the murukku is done, however keep a watch when it turns to brown.

For the last day of this week 3, in BM#104 Sweets & Snacks, where the theme was our choice, I have been sharing Rice flour based traditional snacks. While this particular murukku may not be a traditional one, it sure makes it very addictive. All of us loved the taste and texture.

As it always happens with Mega BM, we keep chasing each day and the whole month just breezes by. We are coming to the last week soon which is going to be mandatory week for all. Its been quite challenging for us and so you come back next week for another interesting round of dishes.

So Spinach Murukku or Palak Murukku is my choice for the Day 6 of My Choice, while its yet another Vada, this time a quick and instant one on Spice your Life!
