Asafoetida powder - a pinch
chilli powder-1/2 spoon
seasame seeds-1 spoon

Butter - 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Mix all ingredients except oil with little water to make it a nice soft dough.
Apply oil in hands so that it wont stick to your hands, add the dough to the murukku maker.
On greased polythene sheets, squeeze the dough from the maker and make murukkus.
Meanwhile heat oil in pan for 5-10 minutes.
Then slowly put them one by one in oil(lot of bubbles will appear).
Fry them until they are golden brown(Tip:bubbles start disappearing as they are cooked).
