Mom prepares all these delicious snacks,for festivals and during summer vaccation Ammama(grand mom) used to prepare all these savoy's for all of us.All mom's and grand mom's have so much patience to do all these snacks and pickles ,these days its so convenient that you get everything in stores.But I prefer home made,this hardly takes any time.Can be enjoyed with tea or as evening snack.Here is my mom's recipe.

This recipe makes 20-30 muruku's and preparation time 40 min.

Rice Flour - 4 cups
All Purpose Flour/Maida - 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds - 1/4 cup
Cumin Seeds - 4 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1tsp(Add according to taste)
Ajwain seeds/carom seeds - 1/2 tsp(Add according to taste)
Salt - To taste
Butter - 1/4 stick(unsalted butter)
Oil - to fry
Onion  - 1/2 small(optional)
1.In a wide bowl add rice flour,maida,sesame seeds,cumin seeds,red chili powder,ajwain seeds,salt,butter,ground onion paste and mix it so that the butter,onion gets well spread.
2.Add water and mix the flour ,it should be a little soft.Cover it and keep it aside.
3.Heat oil in a wide pan and while the oil is heating , spread a tissue or paper and start pressing muruku's with the help of muruku press.Drop in a small piece to check if the oil is ready .
4.Fry the muruku on medium flame until slight brown color,if you over fry them they become hard.Leave them on tissue for 5 min.
5.Repeat the process until all the dough is done.
These muruku's can be stored in an air tight jar and will be good for 15 days or even more.

Note:Mom says that if you make muruku's in circle they don't have enough space for the air to come out while frying and they may become hard.So you can make them in any shape.
