Kale Muruku




Happy Diwali to all of you folks!

Kale is a very nutririous leafy vegetable.




I used kale and made this interesting muruku which was a superhit instantly. I just changed a few ingredients for the traditional muruku and added kale - resulted in  yummy, crispy, crunchy muruku. All of us loved its taste. I am sharing this recipe today so you can make this yummy muruku for Diwali.




Ingredients

Rice flour - 1 cup
Roasted gram flour - 1/4 cup
Salt
Cumin - 1 tsp
Kale leaves - 1/2 cup, de-veined and chopped
Butter - 2 tbsp
Asafoetida - 1/8 tsp
Red chillies - 4
Water

Method

In a big bowl, add the dry ingredients. Blend kale leaves with red chillies and add to the dry ingredients. Make sure not to add too much water (just enough to make a smooth blend). Add this to the dry ingredients.





Add water little by little and make into a smooth pliable ball.



Take a small amount of the above and put inside the muruku press with star nozzle and gently squeeze one or two continuous concentric circles to form the muruku shape on a paper towel or a cloth. (I wanted to make small chaklis).




Heat oil in a pan. When it is hot enough, deep fry the squeezed muruku till golden brown on both sides, drain in paper towel.





Store in airtight container.



Notes

Sorry! Couldn't give a count of murukus, since we were constantly having those. :-)

I used star nozzle and made small concentric rounds. If you use a multi hole nozzle, you can straight away squeeze into hot oil and fry them.
