 2. This is the  Mould i used for this murukku, Load the murukku press with the dough and check in the bowl, by pressing it whether you get a continuous flow of dough.. if not then take out the dough and sprinkle some water and again knead it then try it.. to shape murukku, put some ladle reverse and press it to form the desired shape…

    •  Try to add the accurate measure for the ingredients… if you want to make in large in quantity, then calculate the quantity first.. for eg.. 1 kf rice flour, it needs 1/4 urad dhal flour…
    • Kneading dough is a another challenge.. slowly add water and knead well.. dough should not stick your hands, also it should nor much hard..
    • Check by Pressing the dough in the bowl, to make sure the continuous flow from the mould.. if you get discontinuous flow then take out the dough sprinkle some water and knead again..
    • Keep the flame in medium to cook the murukku, if the flame is high then soon the color will change and the taste will differ.. if the flame is low then the murukku drink more oil and becomes soggy…
    • Make it cool completely and store in airtight container…
