Peanut Butter Murku

Cook's Hideout's August Event celebrates the peanut and has asked readers to submit recipes highlighting this illustrious nut. You'll find the announcement here as well Indira's site here.

My submission, Peanut Butter Murku, combines the nutty flavor of peanut butter with the traditional crunch of Murku to blend two textures in perfect harmony. Enjoy!

  1. Wow.. Very interesting way to incorporate peanut into muruku. They look delicious. Thanks for taking time and participating in JFI: Peanuts.

  2. Very interesting variation to muruku, does the peanut butter soften the muruku a little, really sounds terrific !
