Punugulu

"Punugulu" is a vegetarian deep fried snack from Andhra Cuisine. It is made of left over idly or dosa batter. This crispy fritters is a wonderful snack during monsoon and it is best when combined with a cup of tea or filter coffee.

My sister introduced me to this recipe and many thanks to her. Since then I have become a great fan of "Punugulu".




Ingredients

2 cups of Dosa batter
1/2 cup Maida | Flour
1/2 cup Rice Flour
2 Onions, finely chopped
4 Green chilies, finely chopped
2 sprigs of Curry leaves, finely chopped
3-4 sprigs of Coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp baking soda
Salt
Vegetable Oil | Canola Oil  for deep frying

Method

  • In a mixing bowl, mix dosa batter, maida, rice flour, onions, green chilies, curry leaves, coriander leaves, cumin seeds, baking soda and adjust salt as per taste

  • Add very little water if required. The batter should be very thick so that you can scoop it with a spoon

  • Heat oil for deep frying in a  heavy bottom vessel
  • Wet your hands and scoop a spoon full of batter. Gently drop it in oil. Fry evenly until it turns golden brown 

  • Use absorbant paper to drain excess oil
  • Serve hot with a cup of tea
