Our Review Factors
We reviewed Garden Crispy Murukku based on the parameters mentioned below. From the packaging to the shelf life, here are all our review parameters.
Green in color, and not resealable. The 150 gm pack comes at a price of INR 45.
Refined wheat flour (maida), Edible veg oil, Black gram (Urad), Dehusked Bengal gram flour (besan), Rice flour, Edible common salt, Cumin, Bishops seeds (Ajwain) (0.2%), and Black sesame (til) (0.2%).
Usually, murukku is not filled with too many spices.
The salt levels need to be balanced. Since murukku is a fried snack, the possibility of oil tasting stale or bad might be a bit of a concern.

Garden Crispy Murukku – Detailed Review
Let’s get into the details: Packed in a green color pack, Garden Crispy Murukku offers a shelf life of 6 months. First things first, these are bite-sized sticks.
Texture-wise, these murukkus justify the crispy tag. The crunch and crispness are superb.
In terms of taste, the prominent flavor of ajwain and cumin comes throughout. Nonetheless, it elevates the overall taste. The salt levels are balanced. We like that these murukkus are not loaded with spices.
Sadly, we were not impressed with the ingredient list. Though these murukkus include black gram (Urad), dehusked Bengal gram flour (besan), and rice flour, the presence of refined wheat flour (maida) is not desirable.
