Take star shaped murukku plate and grease it with oil. Also grease the murukku maker with oil.
Now take a portion of the dough, make it cylindrical and place it in the murukku maker.
At this stage, heat oil in the kadai. Keep it in medium flame so that it will not become too hot.
We can shape murukku on butter paper or a polythene sheet or on the spatula.
Keep pressing the murukku maker and move in rounds to get a concentric circle shaped murukku.
Once you have made marukku, with the help of the finger cut the dough at the end.
And then start making the next murukku.
Drop a small piece and check if the oil is hot enough to fry. If the dough raises up, the oil ready.
Gently drop the shaped murukku into the oil.
Fry on medium flame until it turns golden brown in colour. Fry on both the sides.
By that time also the sizzling sound stops.
Once done, remove from the oil and drain it on a tissue paper.
After it cools down, store it in an air tight container.
Serve it with hot tea.
