Punugulu is a deep fried snack originated from one of the southern states of India.Any guesses about the state?? Yes..Its Andra Pradesh.This is a great recipe to get over left over idli/dosa batter.These are crispy vada like snack and believe me,they are quite addictive and delicious.This is one of the quick snacks that you can make without much preparations and can be served hot.Enjoy making this on a chill day to warm you up !!

Method
  • Chop all the veggies as listed and add in a wide bowl and the idli batter,spices too.Mix well and leave covered for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a wok to deep fry and wait till the oil is hot(check by dropping a spoonful of batter.If it floats to the surface of oil immediately,then oil is ready.
  • Pinch out small amount of batter and drop in oil or use a spoon to drop a tbsp of batter.Don't overcrowd the wok and fry in batches.
  • Keep turning all sides to evenly cook and brown.Drain using a slotted spoon and place on paper towel.
