Diwali Special #5 Karachevu

Busy busy every mom out there preparing for diwali..just squeezed in lil' time (while toddler was napping) to enter my last special for this diwali.The irony is, most of the diwali specials are already over ..should i blame my lovin' H or my naughty toddler who showed his dad where i hid them :)).Hoping to save atleast this for diwali day ..:))This last is one of my fav. spicy savoury item.My mom used get this for us from a shop near my home called murugan sweet stall..though it is a sweet tall, i like all the savory items from there :).This is easy to make using channa flour/kadala maavu. I used murukku press for this also.


Channa flour - 2 cups
Rice flour - 2tbsp
Red chillies- 10-15 (15 means very spicy)
Garlic - 2 cloves
Perungayam - as needed
Baking soda - a pinch
Pepper - 1tbsp
Oil - as needed
Salt- as needed


Grind red chillies,garlic and perungayam into a coarse paste.Grind pepper corns separately.Mix channa flour,rice flour,baking soda,salt ,groun red chillie paste and pepper together using salt water.The dough should be as thick as murukku dough.Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.Using murukku press drop murukkus into the hot oil.Now separate the murukku layers ASAP.This will give you long broken strings
dough frying in the oil.Take them out when they are golden brown and drain the oil.Finally break them into small pieces.

Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali....
