Murukku is not just made during festival time. We also make/buy to munch during weekends. At times, we do not finish all of them and when the weekday begins it lies on the dining table and finally we land up throwing. Rather than wasting or eating them all by myself, it is better use it in a way that all of us can share this leftover and that is how Murukku Usli came into my mind. I have already shared Murukku Chat which is also made using left over murukku.
Murukku (Both non-crispy & Crispy) are combined with roasted chili, curry leaves and hing and made into a coarse powder. The mix is them combined with a vegetable of choice and cooked for few minutes. The dish will be ready in less than 10 minutes. Though it is a slight variation (in terms of taste) from the regular paruppu usli it was a super hit at my home.
I started preparing this recipe from various murukku varieties and felt that the traditional south indian kai murukku, mullu murukku or those made with besan flour tastes the best.
I used DIP Food’s Masala Murukku for the video. They are baked and hence less oil when compared to the regular one and I was happy for it.
