urad dal murukkuulundu murukku recipe | urad dal murukku | urad dal chakli recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. murukku or chakli recipes are a common festival snack across india and are made with different types of ingredients. the most common is the rice and lentil-based murukku or chakli which yields a crunchy and tasty snack. the other option is to use the rice and urad dal based combination which is also known as ulundu murukku recipe known for its taste and flavour.

i have posted quite a few chakli or murukku recipes which are primarily made out of one key ingredient. either it is made with rice flour, wheat flour, semolina or just plain flour. this is the first murukku made with the combination of 2 main ingredients, i.e rice flour and urad dal. in addition, it is the first kind of the murukku made without spikes in it. this is how it is made in south india, particularly in tamilnadu, but can also be made with spikes to make it more attractive. i personally like it this way as it is something different and can be made more easily. moreover, you can easily experiment with different size of the shaper to make it more thick or thin in shape.
