    Auto Snacks
    In Making​
    For some oldies like me, it is miserable without finding a snack-ready-to-eat at home.
    The days shelves filled with tins of home-made snacks have become history. There are no grand mas at home to do it sitting on floor at backyard prodding the fire for hours on end with home replete with oil fumes and nice smelling snacks.
    Now it us all mass produced at automatic plants.
    Some years back my friend brought out dosa making machine patent ed d as Dosa King. Few tried it as business selling dosa at wayside. There IPO FLOPPED & the company folded. My friend UK invested hugely in this design patent and manufacturing turned bankrupt.
    In Chennai for binge eating there are very many branded snacks aka munching available.
    Grandsweets is one such.
    Look in video below the muruku - work in progress- by extrusion process.
    You love to pick one from that lot running to other end over as conveyor.
    Happy binge eating.
    God Bless.

    Wonderful. Easy murukus.
    The workers have to wear gloves.

    I loved how the Mullu murrukku comes in a straight line and then there's that circular thing rotating just make the murukku round. Simple technique. .
    No machine can beat Amma/Paati's murukku... :hearteyes:

    Hi thanks for the lovely comment reminding our ma.
    I used to help mom in making the dough into a twisted round but dropping or slipping it gently into the simmering oil was always tricky and risky for me. But now i presume new facilitators available.
    Trust little is shaping well and put on weight. Best wishes to all members of your family.
    God Bless.

    Very true. Miss the good old days where my grandma used to make murukkus and mysurpak. she has prepared single handedly even for marriages with a little help from her DILs. Even my MIL and mother used to prepare snacks at home. As I went for job, I couldn't learn the art of making these snacks.
    These machine made murukkus are perfectly shaped round whereas the home made murukkus are a little irregular in shape.
    Thank you

    Murruku reminds me of late CM Karunanidhi’s averment in a speech during Mupperum Tanil Vizha in 2014 . He used that word in a different context:

    • 'வயதான இந்த காலத்திலும், வாலிப முறுக்கு எனக்கு வரும்' என, தி.மு.க., தலைவர் கருணாநிதி கூறியுள்ளார்.
      இது தொடர்பான, அவரது அறிக்கை: தி.மு.க., முப்பெரும் விழாவிற்கு தொண்டர்கள், தன் குடும்பத்தினருடன், புறப்பட்டு வர வேண்டும். மனக் கலக்கம், ஒரு மணல் துளியளவு கூட, தலைவனுக்கு வருதல் கூடாது என, என் தொண்டர்கள் எண்ண வேண்டும்.அண்ணாதுரை போல் புன்னகை தவழும் முகத்துடன், ஈ.வெ.ராமசாமியை போல, நெஞ்சு நிமிர்த்திய நடையுடன், வயதான இந்தக் காலத்திலும், வாலிப முறுக்கு எனக்கும் வந்தே தீரும் என, திடம் கொள்கிறேன்.
    ( approximate english translation- like my mentors, i too even at this okd age would arrive at the seminar with youthful Exhuberance)

    Many tamil cinema songs cross my mind where murukku used in its lyricks. There are few nursery rhymes in tamil to suit little kids in UT.

    For stiff and tough moustache this word murukku used in tamil language. Murrukku has many meanings.
