Once it cools down, grind them into a fine powder.Mix this powder with rice flour,asafoetida, ghee,salt and water and knead it into a soft dough.

Heat oil in a kadai for frying. Grease the murukku achu with oil and put one small lump of the batter in it.Check if the oil is hot by placing a small piece of dough in it.If it rises up immediately to the top, it is ready to be fried in.

Squeeze the achu over the oil swirling it into circles to get the desired shape of the murukku.
