About Punugulu Recipe

Punugulu also known as Punukkulu is the famous street food of Andhra Pradesh especially in Vijayawada. They are crispy crunchy fritters made from left over fermented idli dosa batter. In south people mostly have idli dosa batter handy daily. So it comes as a nice variation for snacks.

Punugulu

Ingredients to make Punugulu

  • 2 cups Fermented idli dosa batter
  • 1/4 cup suji to thicken the batter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • 1 finely chopped green chilly
  • 1 tsp finely chopped corriander
  • 4-5 curry leaves
  • oil for frying

How to make Punugulu

  1. In a bowl toss together fermented idli dosa batter, salt, chopped green chillies, ginger, cumin seeds, curry leaves and chopped coriander.
  2. If the batter is too thin then add suji just enough to get the right thick consistency.
  3. Heat oil in a kadhai and drop the batter with a spoon.
  4. Fry till golden brown on a medium flame.
  5. Place on a tissue paper to remove the excess oil .
  6. Serve hot and crisp with sauce of your choice.
  7. It is generally served with peanut and capsicum chutney.

My Tip:

If you are not having the fermented idli dosa batter you can grind and prepare the batter keeping the consistency thick. Allow it to ferment overnight and then use. Fermentation is important to get soft punugulu and suji is added to get the crispiness.
