Sagoo Murukku

I like to try interesting recipes especially Chaklis and Murukkus. This time I came across Sagoo murukku. It looked so interesting that I thought of trying it. And the result was  successful. I made 2 batches of the same. Second time I doubled the quantity, so totally I made 3 batches. The murukkus turned crisp and light just perfect for the tea time snack. Happy Laxmi Puja  everyone!
