Punugulu - 1

Pungulu is one of the simple snack item. They can be made N number of ways. They come in handy when there is any left over batter(like idli or dosa batter) in the fridge. Today I am posting one version of Punuglu which can be served on their own with no chutney or pickle needed.
I made garelu yesterday and had some left over batter. So I decided to make punugulu. Below is the entire process from scratch for making this version.


2 cups Urad dal(Minapapappu)
3 Green Chillies + 4 green chillies chopped
Small piece of Ginger
1 1/2 large onion finely chopped
1 small bunch coriander leaves finely chopped
1 tbsp cumin seeds
Salt per taste
1 tsp baking soda(Optional)
5 tbsp Rice flour
3 tbsp All purpose Flour (Maida)
Oil for deep frying


Soak Urad dal in water over night. In a mixer/grinder grind the urad dal, 3 green chillies, ginger and salt, without adding water to little bit tight/thick paste. Grind in batches.
Take the batter into a bowl and add onions, cumin seeds, chopped green chillies, rice flour, All purpose flour, baking soda and coriander leaves. Mix well.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan or kadai. Take a small amount of batter(small lemon sized), form into a ball and drop gently into hot oil and fry till golden brown.

Take them out and drain them on a paper towel. Serve them hot. Yum!! I wish you guys are here to taste these along with me :).
