Kara Sev

Gram flour/kadala mavu - 1 cup, heaped
Rice flour - 3/4 cup
Asafoetida powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
Pepper - 1 tsp, crushed
Jeera /cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Butter - 2 tbspns, softened
Oil - for deep frying
Salt - as needed

Sieve gram flour if it has any lumps. Take both flours in a bowl, butter, crushed pepper,  jeera, salt, turmeric and asafoetida. Mix well. Add enough water to make a stiff dough.  Make as a smooth dough (make sure there is no crack). Take the murukku press (with three holes). 
Fill the press with dough and press in hot oil in large circles. Do not make too many layers. Just two circles. Fry in medium flame on both sides till the bubbles and ‘shhhh’ sounds ceases. Drain in paper towel and break roughly into pieces. Store in air tight container. The pepper flavor incorporates well the next day.
