Butter is must ingredient in this recipe since it helps the murukku to stay crispy for long. You need to wait till bubbles stop to make sure Murukku is well cooked. The dough has to be in a correct consistency, should not be sticky or too hard.
You can also use 3 star murukku mould instead of 1 star mould. Do not add more butter coz  the murukku will break .Chilli powder is optional.
