Murukku is a savoury, crunchy snack originating from the Indian subcontinent, popular in southern India, and Sri Lanka. The snack's name derives from the Tamil word for "twisted", which refers to its shape. In India, Murukku is especially popular in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh. It is also popular in countries with substantial presence of Indian and Sri Lankan diaspora, including Singapore, Fiji, and Malaysia.
Murukku is typically made from rice flour and urad dal flour. It is sometimes called "chakli" in Karnataka; chakli is a similar dish, typically made with an additional ingredient, bengal gram flour.

few I loved are here:
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Red chili powder
3/4 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
1/4 tsp hing
oil for deep frying
1/4 cup curd
1 tbsp butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1/4 cup water or as required to knead dough
1. In a large mixing bowl, take cup of rice flour.
to that add maida. Also add turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin seeds and salt to taste.
then add butter and hing. roughly mix everything.
2. Now add curd and again give a rough mix. slowly add water as required and knead.
knead to smooth dough.
3. Now take star mold and fix to the chakli maker. grease the chakli maker with some oil. this prevents dough from sticking to mold.
4. Now make a cylindrical shape out of dough and place the dough inside maker. Tighten the lid and start preparing chaklis.
5. On the wet cloth or butter paper make spiral shape chaklis by pressing. Seal the ends so that it doesn't fall apart while deep frying.
6 Take one chakli at time and slide it into hot oil carefully directly or use slotted spoon. fry chaklis on medium flame.
7. flip the chaklis and fry till they turn golden brown and crispy from both sides.
drain them to the paper towel to remove excess oil.
Enjoy the chaklis as a tea time snack or anytime :)
