Posted in : GOKULASHTAMI/JANMASHTAMI RECIPES, SNACKS / BAKED / DEEP FRIED / STEAMED on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

Almost like must to do savory snack for deepavali from Karnataka….Benne muruku. Benne means butter and muruku literally means pieces. It is said so because though benne muruku looks exactly like chakkuli/chakli a spiral shaped savory snack from Karnataka, but it is not made in spiral shape, but made in pieces… which is the reason for it’s name.  It is light, crunchy and yummy in taste.
