Butter murukkuNotes:
1.After making the dough,wet your hands and pat the dough,so that it looks little wet and shiny.This will ease the process of pressing.Keep water in a small bowl and do this for all the batches.
2.If you are doing in a large quantity,after adding butter separate the flour mixture into portions,add water to one portion at a time and form dough.This will help to retain the correct color of the murukku
3.Generally omam (carom) seeds or chilli powder will not be added to this murukku,I just added as we like the flavor.
4.You can add 1 tablespoon roasted gram flour to the dough too.
5.Make sure to add hot molten butter for crunchiness.If the quantity of butter increases,murukku will turn out chewy.
