Dinner with Rukmini
Browse all of the recipes in Rukmini Iyer’s cookbooks by ingredient.
These are one of my dad’s favourite snacks, and my grandmother would make them for him (as part of a wider selection) every birthday. It’s a really simple dough of rice and gram flour, fried until crisp. The only slightly technical aspect is the gadget used to press the dough out into shapes in the hot oil – I bought a specific murukku or sev press, which are readily available online, but if you have a cookie press or cylindrical icing set with a star-shaped nozzle, that would work well too.
