0/5 Instructions
  • In a mixer jar, add one cup of loosely packed spinach that is pre-washed. Add half a cup of water and grind to a smooth paste.
  • In a wide bowl, add one cup of rice flour, two teaspoons of roasted gram flour, a quarter teaspoon of sesame seeds, a quarter teaspoon of asafoetida powder, half a teaspoon of cumin seeds, one tablespoon of soft butter, and required salt to taste.
  • Combine all of them together uniformly.
  • Add the spinach puree and make them into a soft, yet non-sticky dough.
  • Choose star-shaped mold in the murukku press. Grease the press and add murukku dough into it. Squeeze them directly in oil. Cook each side for 2 mins and drain them from oil. Allow it to cool down and store in an airtight box.


  • I have used store-bought rice flour for this murukku. You can also use homemade rice flour.
  • Instead of one tablespoon of butter, you can also add 2 tsp of hot oil to make the murukku dough.
  • Replace sesame seeds with jeera seeds if you like. In this case, avoid adding cumin/jeera powder.
