How to make Kai Murukku Crispy | Chakli Recipe with cooked Urad Dal

Murukku is a very old Indian savory. This originated from tamil nadu, the word "Murukku" means twist in tamil. 
Murukku is typically made from rice flour and urad dal flour. It is sometimes called "chakli". Chakli is a similar dish typically made with an additional ingredient bengal gram (chickpea) flour. Kai Murukku in tamil means murukku made in hands instead of equipments. Take dough as a ball then string it as rope in your hands and twist it and make it in round shape. This crunchy snack plays a key role in all chettinad marriages, it is given as one of ‘Seervarusai palagaram’ which should be 9 or 11 swirls (Suthu) in a single murukku. You can store it for a month time and use it. Use fresh oil for long time storage.Tried  it many times to achieve this crunchy long lasting murukku, you also try and enjoy it.
