Coconut Milk Murukku Recipe / Thengai Paal Murukku recipe / Murukku Recipe – Diwali recipe

Murukku can be made in bulks and stored in an air tight container, as is stays fresh for a week. Already I have shared the recipe of Butter Murukku and Rava Murukku. Now let me share coconut milk murukku. Coconut milk murukku / Thengai Paal murukku is prepared with rice flour, white lentils (urad dal) flour and coconut milk. Make sure to use thick coconut milk, as it gives more flavor to the murukku. Compared to the regular ones this murukku is little crispy.

Rava Murukku recipe / Semolina Chakli


Murukku/Chakli is one among my family’s favorite savory snack. Both my kids love to have this murukku, also they finish it within 2 to 3 days.

Usually preparing murukku is a big process, like soaking the raw rice, then drying it and later grinding to powder. But here in this recipe, nothing like that is needed and was prepared in minutes. My kids loved it a lot.

It was delicious, soft and crunchy with wonderful flavor and attractive color. I prepared this for Krishna Jayanthi/Gokulastami. Let us move on to the recipe…

  • Divide the kneaded dough into small portions, press the dough to the hot oil (should do only when the oil is hot).
  • Wait for few mins, till you hear ooze sound, then swap the side of the muruku and wait until it turns golden brown.
