3.Heat oil in a kadai. Test how hot it is by dropping a pinch of dough into it - if it sinks, the oil hasn't become hot enough. If the dough springs to the top with bubbles all around it, then the oil is just ready.

4.Drop in the murukku gently into the hot oil and fry till golden brown. Keep flipping the sides till the murukku is done.

5.Remove and allow them to cool.

Any additional information:
If the amount of rice flour is more than 4 cups then divide the dough mixture before adding water into proportionate parts ie if 8 cups is taken then divide the mixture into two parts and when first part of murukku is made then mix water to the second part and make murukkus.
