ALLAM CHAKRALU (GINGER MURUKU)

INGREDIENTS:-----
Rice flour---- 2 cups
Besan --- 1 tab sp(chick pea flour, senagapindi)
Ginger and green chili paste --- 1 tea sp
Salt to taste
Butter or dalda ---- 1 tab sp
Oil for frying
Method:---
Take rice flour, chick pea flour,ginger and green chili paste,salt to taste in a bowl and mix well.
Heat ghee or dalda and pour over the flour mixture and mix with a spoon then add water slowly little by little to make a soft dough this should be like chapati dough or just soft enough when you press through the muruku press it should come out easily from the muruku maker.
Just check before you pressing murukus in to the oil check if it is easy to press and then do the process, if it is hard than add a little more water and mix the dough well
Heat oil in a deep frying pan, set the disc in to the muruku maker I used lines disc.Idon't know y my mom used this shape so i am fallowing her thats it.
Fill half of the murukumaker with dough and press the dough in to hot oil keep tha flame in medium and let it fry till light brown color,turn the other side and let it cook to a golden brown color then remove from the oil and place it on a absorbent paper and cool.
Repeat the same process with rest of the dough,cool completely and store in a air tight container.

Freshly ground ginger and green chili paste will give a good aroma to this chakralu and don't add any other herbs like curry leaves, cumin seeds or anything that will dominate the ginger flavor so only ginger and green chili paste.

I only add garlic, adding ginger should have totally different taste. Great twist for ribbon pakoda! Great for winter evening snack!
