badam murukku / almond murukku / diwali recipe

Badam murukku recipe with step-wise pictures. Badam murukku is a easy diwali recipe that I wanted to try. If you see my diwali recipes list, it will be full of sweet recipes and I haven’t tried any savory recipe. I am a sweet toothed person and rarely eat savory snacks. So tried this murukku for the first time and it came out so well. It is soft and crispy like the murukku bought in stores. The almond taste and flavor in murukku is really good.
