Maida mullu thenkuzhal


 I tried this Maida Mullu thenkuzhal for navarathri neivedhyam. It came out really well. very easy and tasty recipe... 

Moving on to recipe:


  • Maida - 1 cup
  • Water
  • Butter - 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds  or sesame seeds  - 2 tsp
  • Asafoedita
  • Salt
  • Oil for frying


  • Take maida and place it ina cloth/ idly cloth. Keep in steamer for 10- 12 mins.

  • When it is done , it forms like a lump shown in the pic...

  •  Transfer it into a plate spread it and allow it to dry for 2 hrs.

  • Sieve the dried flour. If you find any lumps or small balls, you can knead it with your hands and sieve it.

  •  Add the maida, cumin seeds, salt asafoedita and butter and knead it into a soft dough using water. ------>
  •  Split the dough into parts and fill into the murukku press.
  •  I have chosen star mould for mullu thenkuzhal. ---------------->
  •  Take a ladle and press the mould onto the ladle and make into murukku shape. ------------------>


  • Heat a pan of oil, place the ladle into the hot oil. Murukku will slowly drift inside the oil. place it till it goes into oil by itself.

  • Drain it and store it in a air tight container.

 Crispy and crunchy Thenkuzhal is now ready
