    This is a tasty South Indian snack which needs good practice of handwork to make. Once made, it makes a wonderful tea time snack. It is usually made during festivals and weddings.

      In malaysia we have a snack which we call Muruku also, I suppose it did come from the indians, and the recipe for it is similar also, however we have this type of mold which we place the murukku mixture in and when we turn the handle of the mold it comes out looking like spaghetti which we drop directly into the hot oil and fry till crispy. It's interesting to see how other people make theirs and I must agree, it's delicious :)
