Pulla Jantikalu - Pulippu Murukku - Sour Murukku

Perugu Jantigalu  is a Tangy Murukku made using Sour Curd as a Main Ingredient. I am a big fan of Curd Murukku(Thayir Murukku). In my family everybody likes this. I learnt this recipe from my cousin,srimathi Aunty.Usually we buy this murukku in shops. After i tried and came out well, i was so much exited. i hope u will also enjoy the recipe.

Sesame seeds - 1 tsp.


Grind the Green chillies and salt  with 2 tbsp of sour curd into a smooth Paste.

  • To check oil is hot,put small piece  of dough in a hot oil, when it pops up immediately,it is indication that oil is hot.
  • Now squeeze the  Murukkus , in a circular motion over  hot oil.cook in medium flame.
  • Cook both sides until the Shh!!! sound & bubbles  ceases & also it turns light Golden brown.

  • Then Remove it, and  drain it in the  kitchen towel.

  • Always prefer Sour Curd, for Good Results.
  • Grind Green chillies into smooth Paste, for smooth squeezing.
  • Instead of Green Chillies, you can add Red chilly Powder also. 
  • If you are making in large quantity. divide the mixed flour into 2 or 3 portions, then mix  curd  little by little to each portions, before deep frying, else murukku turns red.
  • After making the dough cover the bowl with lid, else dough becomes dry.
  • Be careful while squeezing murukku over oil.
  • When you squeeze murukku, automatically it breaks into small pieces.

This is my all time favourite including that of my children too! Alternatively, you can omit maida, use full cream curd, omit butter and add red chilli powder instead of green chilles. It comes out yummyy!
