Rava Murukku recipe / Semolina Chakli

Standard

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…
