    Kai Murukku

    When the theme for this blog hop was decided as the first recipe, I knew what I had to blog about and that is this Kai murukku. I entered the kitchen at the age of 12 for attempting this savoury. I am sure it will look absurd that such an young girl would attempt this, but trust me, I had to do this not because I wanted to be adventures but because of compulsion.

    It was The festival day and my mother was working in the kitchen in front of a bowl kadai of hot oil makes savouries for the kids. A mishap happened and the whole hot oil fell on her leg and she was severely burnt. We did give the medical help immediately but she was in utmost pain. She just could not continue anymore and that is when she instructed me to try this. She guided me but it was an utter failure. And From that day onwards I have not tried this at all for the fear of reliving those moments. This blog hop made me come out of the comfort zone and try this and I think I have a long way to go

    You began your first attempt at cooking with such a challenging snack. It is very difficult to make a perfect Kai Murruku and trust me, this one is super delicious. Veena, what happened to your mom was seriously a bad accident and I can imagine as a young child what it must have made you feel but the fact that you learnt from those circumstances makes it all worth it. Happy Diwali to you and family and Kai Murruku looks extremely delicious.

    Such difficult snack to make and yet you attempted it knowing very well that your mum needed your help. I’m glad you made this snack for this theme as that means you’re getting over your fear.
