Raw Rice flour, Store-bought bought 1.5 cup

Asafoetida 2 pinches 
Salt 3/4 tsp

Once it gets deep fry temperature, take one small laddle hot oil and pour over the dough.
Simmer the Heat level.
knead again to combine.
Grease the murukku press with little oil.
Use any disc you like, I am using star disc here.
Fill the press with a portion of the dough.
Now increase the heat to medium level. 
Squeeze the dough as  spiral shape roughly into the hot oil carefully.
Flip over to get uniform fry both sides.
Once oil bubbles subside, drain the oil and collect them murukku on a tissue paper.
Repeat the same process for the remaining dough.
you will get around 6 batches like this.
Let them cool down.
Break the murukku into bites
