Sago Murukku

I made these as soon as Valli gave the recipe for this month's ICC.  They were finished immediately on the next day.  They turned really great. 
Today I totally forgot that I have to post the recipe and pictures.  Just now I saw Vallli's post and remembered about it.  Its a very simple recipe Valli has given.

2 Cups Rice Flour
1/2 cup Besan flour
1/2 cup Fried gram flour
1/2 cup Sago
1/4 cup Curd
50 ml Oil
Salt to taste
Chile powder - 1/2 tsp or as per taste

Make buttermilk of the curd.  Soak Sago in Butter milk for 3 hrs, please ensure that you soak it enough else you may risk having the sago burst.

Mix all the flour together, heat 50 gms oil, mix to the flour along with salt and chili powder. Then add the buttermilk soaked sago slowly and knead to a chapati dough consistency
Heat oil for deep frying.In the muruku achu, add the dough. When the oil is hot, press down directly as as murukus.
Cook on medium flame to ensure the muruku is cooked well.

Ensure sago soaks in buttermilk well and is soft or else it will burst when you press it down in hot oil.
Cook on medium to ensure even cooking.
Fried Gram flour is fried channa dal that is available commercially. It is general sold as the dal, we have to powder it at home. This is also referred as chutney dal as it is used in making coconut chutney.
