Diwali 2017-Chocolate Barfi & Murukku Recipe
Finally this is the last post about the Diwali Faral for this year. Dhantrayodashi and Laxmi Pujan post was about the Kaju Katli, Kalakand and Palak Sev recipes. Another two new recipes which I tried this year are Rice Murukku and Chocolate Barfi which are mentioned in this blogpost.
In order to make the Diwali props as seen in below pic refer to this link
The Rangoli is made with using the readymade stencils which I bought from Mumbai
Pic with Aai. She helped me to make faral for this year.
Wore this saree gifted by my sister in law. She bought it from Chennai.
Rice Murukku Recipe
Rice Flour -1 cup
Urad Dal Flour – 1/4 cup
Black or white sesame seeds – 1 tsp
Butter – 1 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Hing – a pinch
Thick coconut milk – 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp
Oil for deep frying
In a bowl mix together rice flour, urad dal flour, sesame seeds and butter well with your finger tips
Add coconut milk little at a time and make a soft and smooth dough.
Heat oil in a kadai. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium. To check if the oil is hot, drop a piece of dough into the oil, if it raises to the surface immediately, the oil is hot enough to fry the murukkus.
Store the fried murukkus in airtight containers
