Corn flour murukku

Corn flour murukku | Chola Maavu Murukku
If you are really bored of normal murukku made from rice flour, you can try this corn flour murukku. Corn flour murukku is prepared from corn flour and besan flour. My mom gave this recipe long time back but I was quite pessimistic about the taste. When she came here to my home, she made it once. It was too good. I have used the yellow corn flour got from Indian grocery. This is one of the quick savory prepared for Deepavali festival using the traditional murukku press. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Corn flour recipe.
