Murruku is a South Indian crunchy snack food made mainly with rice flour. There are so many different varieties of Murukku. Achu Murukku is a sweeter version of this South Indian fried food made using a mold.

In Tamil language, Murukku means twisted because of its shape and Achu means Mold: Here a flower shaped mold is used to make Achu Murukku.

Step 1: Achu Murukku Mold

The mold used to make Achu Murukku is made of thin metal sheet shaped like a flower. A  handle, about 12 inches long, is attached to the center of the flower shape. When you hold the handle perpendicular to the ground, the flower shaped mold stays facing downwards. These type of molds are readily available in Crocery shops in South India.
thank you...
My grand mother make &quot; flores&quot; ( flowers) with egs, flour and olive oil in Spain. <br> <br>http://cociditodemivida.blogspot.com.es/2011/03/flores-15.html
looks so nice and similar...I think the language is Spanish, but easy to follow with the photographs... Gracias por compartir
Any advice on where to purchase this sort of mold?
You could purchase a similar, but not identical, mold for the purpose of making Swedish rosettes. They are not made of sheet metal like the one shown on this instructable but they are otherwise similar. See, for example, https://www.google.com/search?q=swedish+rosettes&amp;tbm=shop .
Thanks! These do appear to have a similar function.
this sort of ready-made molds are available in South Indian grocery shops only. Sheet metal working shops can easily make one if you show them the design.
The Swedish make something similar called rosettes (but with a wheat flour based batter). See http://youtu.be/TfOcG0EPkf0 for an example.

So excited to try this! When I lived in Chennai, my coworker made these and they were SO yummy!

I love the look of these. I wonder if the molding process would work with plain old pancake batter.
Please try with the pancake batter.. I think it should work
