Murrukku

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

Obvious I was in to food , dreaming of a good steak.

Here you see Murrukku, no English name for it, made from rice flower and sesame seed, pressed to this form and fried in refined oil.

Very crispy, you need some good teeth and the yellow ones are not spicy, the rose they add chili-powder, take care of those if you are sensitive to spicy things.

One of my favorite 'amuse gueule' dwelling around the streets of Madurai at night.
