I remember one of my friend wrote tnpl exam at Manapparai along with her me and my mom went to Manapparai. but never tasted the murukku:( Here I used the pound rice flour and urad dal flour. The shape also perfect round shape and use mullu murukku mold. The speciality of Manapparai murukku is deep fried twice to get the golden hue. It is easy to differentiate the good from the bad by the colour.
Yes, this is one of the special recipe included in my Tamil Nadu Famous food series🙂 Manapparai taluk famous manapparai murukku recipe is here:)Murukkus are same as chaklis, the same snack called as Murukku in Tamil, is called as Chaklis in North. The press used also is the same. Mine turned out golden, crispy and very much tasty. Maybe the Urad dal was a bit more. As in the article, they only talk about a dash of urad dal .
