Butter Murukku / Chakali

butter murukku recipe

Butter Murukku is one of the easiest and soft among all other murukku. There are different types of murukku such as thengai/ coconut murukku, normal and original rice flour murukku etc…this snack is prepared with a combination of maida with urad dal and little butter with a flavor of cumin seeds and sesame seeds. This is a very good snack for evening tea.
