Kai Muruku, is a famous hand-made Indian savory snack. Its an art and requires lot of patience and practice to make it.

Kai suthu murukku (Hand spun) is prepared by getting a string of dough and twisting it while winding it into a ring. This process is very hard, requires patience and is highly technical work.
