Butter Murukku

In childhood days, love to watch these murukkus in the bakery thro those glass jars. My parents wont buy murukku from shops, as my father was so good in making them at home. It was his interest to learn new varieties of snacks to make at home. It used to be so perfect in shape as well as taste. Even if something goes wrong while trying new recipes, he used to handle it well. During diwali snacks preparation, we all used to help mom to make more varieties. Dad used to take care of these savories, and i help mom to prepare rava ladoo or other sweets. Those are sweet memories. :)
