Ribbon Murukku/ Pokkodam

Pokkodam is savory made from rice flour and chickpea flour. It is often made during Diwali and also a best tea time snack. It does not involve any preparation ahead. This is one of my favorite savory.

Rice flour - 3 cups
Besan flour/ Chickpea flour - 1 cup
Red chilli powder - 2-3 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Unsalted butter - 1 tbsp
Oil for deep frying

Sift the flours through a fine sieve.
To this add chilli powder, butter, asafoetida and salt and mix well.
Now add water slowly and mix to make a dough. The dough should be of thick consistency (like that of bread or chappathi).
Heat oil on a medium flame.
Stuff the dough into the murukku press (as in the below snap) and squeeze it directly into the hot oil.

Fry on both side by flipping, till they turn brown.
Drain them on a paper towel and store in a air tight container.

Preparation time: About 30 mins.
