Puzhungal arisi murukku / Parboiled rice murukku

pulungal

Pulungal arisi murrukku is a famous murukku from Virudhunagar where the parboiled rice is soaked and then ground using a wet grinder and finally made to a dough with some pottukadalai powder.It has a nice texture and flavour because of the preparation method and the ground smell of the soaked idly rice and the addition of roasted pottukadalai maavu enhances the taste of this murukku.
The two things we should take care of are to grind the soaked rice until they are greasy in texture by adding water at regular intervals,do not make it watery and then to powder the pottukadalai finely and sieve it before adding to the rice batter.
This Puzhungal arisi murukku tastes so different from all the murukku recipes because of wet grinding method.Though being a lengthy process it is worth trying and perfect for an evening snack.
