Crispy Andhra Punugulu with Idly Dosa Batter:

Recipe Type: Snack
Cuisine: Andhra
Author: Cherie
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • Idly batter – 1 cup
  • Dosa batter – ½ cup
  • Salt as per taste
  • Cumin – 1 tbsp
  • Oil for deep frying

Optional (as per taste):

  • Finely chopped green chillies – 4
  • Finely chopped onion – 1 big
  • Chopped curry leaves – few
  • Chopped coriander – 1 tbsp

Instructions:

  • In a mixing bowl, take both batters and mix well.
  • Add salt, cumin. Also, add the onions and other ingredients mentioned if you need them.
  • Check for the consistency. If it is thin, the punugulu will absorb a lot of oil.
  • In that case, add some maida to correct the consistency.
  • Take oil for deep frying in a thick bottomed Kadai.
  • Drop small dumplings with three fingers into the hot oil.
  • Fry till golden brown and transfer to the kitchen tissue to absorb excess oil.

Notes:

* The idli dosa batter should be thick. Adding more maida to make it thick would give the required taste and texture. So make sure the batter itself is thick. I generally grind both the batters thick so that it can be made thin if needed.

** The Andhra punugulu with this batter will be crisp outside and soft inside.

*** The ravva in the idly batter will enhance the texture of the punugulu and gives the crispness to them.
