Uzhunda Mavu / Urad Dhal Powder

                             With the Uzhunda  Mavu  and Rice Flour at home, different variety of Murukkus can be made at home in small quantities within 30 minutes.
Urad Dhal supplied through PDS can also be used, if available.

                          As the Urad Dhal is to be powdered, any type of white Urad dhal, whole or split can be used.

                         I always powder 1 Kg. of Urad dhal and it comes almost for 6 - 8 months. This can be stored even outside the fridge in an airtight container for a year.

Urad Dhal flour

Ingredient :

Urad dhal  1 Kg.

Method :

1. Heat a heavy bottomed Kadai, preferably Calcutta Chatti ( a kind of Aluminium ) and dry roast 1 kilo of Urad Dhal till an aroma starts coming out. Do not  over roast as done for Idli Powder.

2. Mild roasting for an aroma is enough. My mother in law says that over roasting the Urad Dhal may lead to the breaking of the Murukkus.

3. After it cools, grind in the flour mill, sieve and store in an airtight container.
