  1. In a small bowl add ajwain/caraway seeds and ½ cup warm water. Mix well and allow it to soak for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes filter the ajwain water and keep it aside.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan. In a bowl add kambu/ bajra flour,besan, rice flour, melted butter, hot oil, salt and ajwain water. Mix well to form a soft dough. I added around ½ cup water which might be more or less for everyone depending on the freshness of the bajiri/ Kambu flour. If you need more water than mentioned add it gradually to make soft dough. If the dough becomes watery add little extra kambu/ pearl millet flour to make it into soft dough.
  3. Now take the murukku maker and place the above shown disc template in it. Take a portion of dough and place it in the murukku maker.
  4. Press it in oil from the sides to form a circle (When the batter is dropped in oil it will start bubbling).
