No comments :
Mucchore (Kannada) ,Manam Kombu (Tamil) ,Mullu Murukku (Tamil) are all different names for a deep fried snack made using Moong Dhall flour and Rice flour.
In Kannada ,"Mucchore" means deep fried dough. Since we use butter to knead the dough for crispness,it is also called as "Benne Mucchore" ."Benne" meaning Butter
In Tamil "Mullu" means "Thorn" and Murukku is "Twist / Winding/Entangle" . Since ,we use a star shaped plate to press out this chakli,the shape of the chakli feels a little serrated and the shape is random as we just move the press in random order. Hence called as Mullu Murrukku since it resembles a "Bunch of Entangled Thorns".
"Manam" in Tamil is "Aroma" and "Kombu" is "Small Sticks" . This snack has a very nice aroma due to the moong dhall flour and with every bite we can feel the taste explicitly,hence aptly calle as "Manam Kombu" or " Aromatic Savoury Sticks"

Enjoy the video and make this crispy snack for evening Tea Time
