Murukku is a crunchy snack that has its origins in Tamil Nadu. In Tamil, the word 'murukku' means to twist and break. Murukku has, however, become a favourite snack of Keralites too. It adds the perfect crunch to your evening tea.
Women in the agraharams in Palakkad had their own special murukku recipes which they passed down to the younger generations. This butter murukku is usually made during special occasions like weddings or poojas or during festivals like Diwali and Onam. Those who have tasted this snack say that the butter adds a special kick to the murukku. Here is the recipe for the Palakkad-style butter murukku.
