Here’s another crunchy and delicious snack recipe from Jyothy. Here’s what she said on how and what made her make these murukkus for her daughter Raaga:”Cheese puffs are my husband’s favorite junk food and he keeps them stocked at home much to my annoyance. Raaga has been munching on them lately and it got to a point where she has to have a handful of them EVERY evening while I make dinner. I decided that if she must eat junk, it might as well be something homemade- and somehow minimize the junk factor. Put in a call to my mom and got this recipe. Raaga has not eaten cheese puffs since I made these. My next goal would be to move from murkulu to fresh veggies for a pre-dinner snack, although that may just be my wishful thinking.”
On one of the Telugu cooking shows (Abhiruchi on Etv), a doctor explains the nutritional values of dishes that were made that day and she mentioned that our traditional dishes that are deep fried are still better than buying junk food with tons of preservatives and empty calories from the store.
