PESARA CHEKRALU -- MOONG DAL MURUKU

This is one more variety of every body's favorite cruncy snack .Commonly murukus are made with rice flour but in this recipe I used maida(all purpose flour).Here we have to do little home work before we mix the dough with maida

Steam maida:Tie maida in a thin muslin cloth .. spread a clean white muslin cloth and put maida in the midle of the cloth and take all four sides of the cloth in to your hand and tie the cloth tightly like a bag.Make sure that maida should'nt come out.keep this maida bag in a vessel and place this vessel in a steamer, steam cook for 25 to 30 minutes in a meadium heat. You can do this process in a pressure cooker too with out weight. Remove from cooker and break lumps and sieve the maida now this maida is ready to mix the muruku dough..
Now let's check the other ingredients..
