Butter Murukku Recipe | White Chakli – Butter Chakli | Benne Chakli with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Murukku is a crunchy and savory indian snack prepared especially during festival seasons. The main ingredient for murukku is rice flour which is typically combined with besan or urad dal flour. However, to make it more soft and tasty, butter is added while mixing; hence, the name butter murukku is derived.

I have always been an enthusiastic person when it comes to celebrating indian festivals. Especially, I wait for those festivals celebrated with snacks and sweets recipes. The butter murukku or butter chakli recipe is one such which is prepared in most of the festival. Moreover, I have always been a big fan of snack recipes rather than sweet recipes prepared during festivals. Perhaps, I developed a taste for snack recipes from my father who also happens to be an ardent snack recipe follower. However, he does not like to have a soft murukku, and he adds butter in small quantities. Whereas I add a generous amount of butter making it a perfect festival snack for all age groups. 

White Chakli - Butter Chakli

Also, I would like to add some tips and tricks for a crunchy and tasty Butter Murukku Recipe. Firstly, to make it more soft and tender, you may add 2 tbsp of grounded channa dal. This would also make it murukku more crunchy. Secondly, add asafoetida while preparing the dough to make it more digestible. This is not mandatory, but adding it makes it more digestible. Furthermore, once the dough is prepared, prepare the chakli immediately. Otherwise, the murukku would be hard and brittle. Lastly, always use fresh oil to deep fry chaklis. This would ensure murukku to be fresh for a minimum of 2 weeks. In addition, store these in air-tight containers for longer shelf life.
