Murukku is typically made from rice flour and urad dal flour. It is sometimes called “chakli” in Karnataka; chakli is a similar dish, typically made with an additional ingredient, bengal gram (chickpea) flour. Deepavali Murukku is typically made from rice and urad dal flour. The flours are mixed with water, salt, chilli powder, asafoetida and either sesame seeds or cumin seeds.
