    Ingredients

    The following are the ingredients needed to prepare around 18 to 20 numbers of Chettinad Thenkuzhal,

    • Raw rice - 4 cups
    • Urad dal - 1 cup
    • Salt as required
    • Butter - 1 tablespoon
    • Water as required for dough
    • Oil for frying.

    Preparation Steps

    For preparing Thenkuzhal flour:

    1. Rinse and dry three cups of raw rice at room temperature.
    2. Dry roast one cup of urad dal for a few seconds only until it heats up.
    3. Grind this 4:1 ratio of raw rice and roasted urad dal. It is better to grind in milling machinery than a household mixer.
    4. This nicely ground flour should be sieved and can be stored in an airtight container for around 6 months.

    For preparing Thenkuzhal:

    1. Take a large bowl, add around two cups or as required Thenkuzhal flour, salt, butter and knead by adding water little by little.
    2. Knead it into a stiff dough.
    3. Take a heavy bottomed pan, add oil as required for deep fry and heat it at medium to high flame.
    4. Roll the dough, take a medium sized portion and fill the murukku maker/mould with the prepared dough.
    5. Once the oil is heated, lower the flame to medium and start preparing Thenkuzhal.
    6. It can be squeezed directly into the oil or squeeze on a spatula first and then gently drop it into the oil.
    7. You can add more than one at a time based on the pan capacity/size.
    8. Flip them to cook evenly on both sides. If the bubbles have stopped, take it out and place it on a strainer or tissue paper to remove excess oil.
    9. Store them in an airtight container and it can stay crisp for over a week.
