Making murukku has become pretty easy with this ready-made flour. There are several brands available in stores.  Purchase your preferred brand, but keep in mind to follow the below given tips to get perfect Murukkus. The dough should be kneaded to a perfect consistency. It should not be sticky or too hard. Do not substitute Butter with ghee or margarine. Butter should be at room temperature before mixing it into the flour. Butter is one main ingredient behind crispy and soft Coconut Milk Murukkus. Do not overheat the coconut milk, it should be just warm while mixing it into the dough. Adding warm coconut milk enhances the flavour. You can press the Coconut Milk Murukkus directly into the oil. Care should be taken while doing so. Allow the Coconut Milk Murukkus to completely cool down before storing it in airtight containers. If stored properly, it stays good for a long time.
