Healthy Snacks For Kids - Sesame Coconut Millet Murukku

By Simran Oberoi Multani

Nothing can beat homemade savories and snacks. Murukku means twisted in the Tamil language. If you notice, the shape of the murukku is twisted and turned and hence the name. Muruku is a healthy snack for kids and comes in different varieties like rice flour murukku, roasted gram murukku, urad dal murukku, etc., Coconut milk murukku is a traditional one, with coconut flavor. The one I am sharing here is a very basic, old, and standard recipe that is followed by many South Indian women. 

 Evening Snacks Using Beetroot And Spinach Dosa Batter

Why don’t you try a healthier version of it Murukku? I have tried to give a very special twist to the recipe by making it with Slurrp Farm Spinach Dosa Mix.  I have been eating dosas using this batter but this time I used it for making Millet Murukku. And I promise you for not even once will the taste be compromised. The ingredients used in the pack are spinach, foxtail millet, and 4 dals - urad, chana, moong, and toor with natural spinach powder and a mix of mild spices. Isn't that saving up my time?

This healthy snack for kids comes out nice crunchy, perfect to munch during tea time. 

In the coming days, I will definitely be making more of these! Will you?
