For this Urad dal is used.

Ingredients:
Processed rice flour - 4 cups
Urad dal - 1 cup
Cumin seeds - 2 tsp
Salt - 3 to 4 tsp
Asafodeita piece - 1 inch
Butter - 100 gm
Oil for frying

Method:
Soak salt in 1/2 cup of water and wait till it dissolves completely. Add asafodeita to 1/4 cup of water. In a shallow vessel add rice flour, urad dal, cumin seeds, butter along with salt water and asafodeita water. Make a soft dough by adding water little by little. The dough should not be thick or liquid. It should be soft enough so that it can be easily squeezed using the Thenkuzhal plate.

Heat the oil in a pan, add the dough into the cylindrical tube of the Murukku achchu. Use the thenkuzhal achu to squeeze the thenkuzhal. Donot squeeze the thenkuzhal so close but spread it over the pan. Use the given quantity of butter or ghee.

Never store the mixed dough for a long time. The thenkuzhals will become red if the dough is left for a long time. So mix the dough whenever needed.
