Punugulu with Dosa batter Recipe

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Yield: 6
Main Ingredients: urad dal rice

Ingredients

  • Dosa Batter - 2 cups
  • Rice flour - 1 - 2 tbsps
  • Semolina - 2 tbsps (semolina/cream of wheat)
  • Onions - 1/2, finely chopped
  • Green chili paste - 1 tsp or 2 finely chopped green chilies
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 1 sprig, finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves - 2 tbsps, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying

Method

  1. Combine all the above ingredients except oil. Mix well. Leave aside for half an hour.
  2. Heat oil for deep frying. Once the oil gets hot, reduce flame to medium. Place a tablespoon for batter into the hot oil. (You can use your hand instead of a spoon to drop small balls of the batter into the hot oil) Place 7-8 punugulu in the first batch. Do not crowd the vessel.
  3. Turn the punugulu as they change color and cook till golden brown.
  4. Remove onto absorbent paper. Serve with chutney of your choice.

Tips

  • Add more rice flour if the batter is too thin. It should be a slightly thick batter.
  • You can use fermented fresh dosa batter or 2-3 days old dosa batter which gives a nice sour flavor to the punugulu.

    It’s a delicious way to use up left over dosa batter. Can survive with these bondas alone for months. Once you start eating them it is difficult to stop.

    In tamilnadu also people prepare it when the dosa batter became very sour.
