INGREDIENTS:----
Rice flour ---- 2 cups
Fried chick pea flour (putnalu, porikadalai, hurigadala.daliya, chutney dal, veyinchina senagapappu) - 1/2 cup (dry roast fried chick peas till little warm and grind them in to a fine powder)
Chick pea flour (besan, senagapindi, kadala mavu) --- 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Butter – 1 tab sp (you can use oil)
Red chili powder --- 1 1/2 tea sp (according to your taste)
Vamu (Ajwain, carom seeds) --- 1 tab sp
Seasame seeds – 2 tab sp
Oil for frying

METHOD:-----
1. In a big bowl mix 3 flours, salt to taste, Red chili powder, vaamu and seasame seeds mix well.

2. Heat 2 tab sp oil in a pan and add this oil to the flour mixture and mix with a spoon. If you want to add butter then no need to melt or heat the butter just add 1tab sp butter and rub with your hand and mix well.
3. Now add enough water and knead in to a soft dough
4. In the same time heat enough oil in a deep frying pan for deep frying the Manugupoolu.
5. Fix the disc with star hole in the chakrala press ( muruku maker) and press on top of a polythene sheet.
6. Now lift them from the sheet and drop in to hot oil and fry till golden color in a very low flame.
7. If you fry them in a high flame they won't cook properly and become hard so fry them in a very low flame it will take time but result will be great and you can get yummy and crispy manugupoolu.

8. And some more tip's I want to share with you all is when you are pressing manugupoolu, press them on the back side of a round ladle and slowly drop it with ladle this prevents oil burnings on your hand.
9. Make sure you dough is soft and is enough to press through from the muruku press If your dough is hard then when you drop muruku in to hot oil they break in to smal pieces and oil will spoil. so dough should be very soft(like a sticky chapathi dough)
10. Wet your hands and dick every time when you are filling the dough in to murukumaker. This will be very help full in pressing muruku.
Hope you all like my recipe and enjoy your snack with a cup of coffee..
