Use Fresh and Crispy Murmura. If they are not crispy or they are soggy, then dry roast in a pan for a couple of minutes so that the moisture in it evaporates.

You can add some roasted sesame seeds or any nuts while mixing Murmura into Jaggery syrup.

You can keep the size of Mamra Ladoo as per your preference.

Alternatively, after mixing- immediately spread the mixture of mamra and jaggery syrup into a greased plate. Flat-it with the base of a small bowl and cut mamra chikki into the desired shape.

If you apply water in more quantity while rolling mamra laddu, then mamra ladoo will become soggy afterward.
