Ingredients

Notes

  1. Storebought murmura is not always crispy. I make sure to dry roast it first.
  2. Keep it in an airtight container. Murmura becomes soggy if kept open for the longer duration.
  3. A lot of variation can be done by adding lotus seeds, dry coconut flakes, dry fruits like cashew, almond, raisin, boondi and much more to add. But basic remains the same.
