    Butter - 160gm
    Coconut - 1
    Sesame seed - 50 gm
    Cumin seeds - 50 gm
    Salt to taste
    Cooking oil for frying


    Method

    Mix both kind of flours and salt.
    Soften the butter and mix well with flour.
    Add sesame and cumin seeds and mix thoroughly.
    Extract think coconut milk from the coconut.
    Add coconut milk bit by bit until you get the right consistency.
    Put dough in Murukku press and press out on banana leaves or pieces of paper.
    Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.

    If the consistency of the dough is too watery, the Murukku will absorb oil.

    Badam cake:
    very easy!! soak badams and peel the skin. grind it nicely with a bit of milk. in a non-stick pan, put the mix and add sugar as needed. cook till it is thick. add a couple of tbsp ghee, cook till it doesn't stick to the sides.( a bit like mysorepAgu). put it in a greased plate and slice when cold. plain, pure sweet!!!
    same can be done with cashews also!
