✍️The consistency of the dough is very important for making this murukku, it should not be very hard or very soft so add water cautiously.
✍️If you are doing this murukku in large quantities knead the dough in small portions fry that batch and then knead the next otherwise the dough will dry up quickly.
✍️Keep the temperature of the oil in medium throughout.
✍️Don't disturb the murukkus immediately after adding to the oil leave them as such for a minute or two.
✍️Adding too much butter or water will disintegrate the murukkus while frying so add the required quantity only.
