As Gokulashtami/Janmashtami is round the corner I’m posting all the snacks which are necessarily made particularly on that day. Again muchhore is yet another savory snack made specially in the houses of brahmins in Bengaluru & Mysuru region. It is also a tea/coffee time snack and made on festivals like Gokulashtami/Janmashtami & off course Deepavali, though it looks similar to chakli or murukku, the ingredients used are different and it is comparatively little spicy and has different taste and aroma. In this recipe roasted & powdered yellow lentil/moong dal is used along with rice flour.
