You can use your own homemade rice flour or idiyappam flour. Try to use fresh flours for this murukku. I have included fried grams in this murukku to bring the soft texture, if you don't have leave it. My Grandma suggests me to add moong dal flour for this murukku because it produces a nice flavour. If you have some leftover moong dal flour, you can add it instead of fried gram flour. As for the butter, you can add 3 to 4 tbsp for 2 cups of flour, but I have reduced to 2 tbsp because the murukku will break down into very small pieces and also it absorbs more oil when fried. To add some flavour cumins and asafoetida powder can be added. For deep frying, you can use either groundnut oil or coconut oil. Now we will see how to prepare this Butter Murukku with step by step instructions.
