Kunukku is traditionally prepared by soaking dhals and rice and grinding with chillies and salt. This batter is deep fried like bonda. But for a quick version, we can make it with left over idli batter also. This dish is served with chutney.

Thank you Asha.
Oh my gosh this looks amazing! I am drooling. I have some extra idli batter sitting around.. now I have some inspiration!
Kamala I forgot to ask.. When you say ‘one big bowl’ of Idli batter, do you mean 3 cups worth? What is the amount? Nandri
This is a traditional dish usually prepared with soured ‘adai’ batter. Yours seems good and unusual tempting me to try it. Keep it up.
Thank you Jennifer and Viji for taking time to visit my site and your comments.
Jennifer – Yes approx 3 teacups of batter.
Today i made this Easy Kunukku with cocunut chutney. It is really very tasty. As u r calling it Easy Kunukku, it is really easy kunukku. In south indian homes normally Idly batter is always available. If suddenly guests come then we can easily do this snack.
Thankyou very much for giving us a very easy and good snack item.
Thank you for visiting my site and your comments. As you said rightly idly batter is always available in South Indian homes. You can also use this batter for making quick paniyaram using the paniyaram chatti.
Your recipe looked tempting.Yesterday i made them with left out idli batter(followed all the instructions).But the balls didnt come out properly,they became flat(as per instructions i added little water also).Can u tell me how to achieve Kunnukus like yours?
It seems your idli batter is too loose (having more water). Adding maida or rawa will make the batter slightly thicker than the normal idli batter. The dough should be slightly loose than chapati dough and slighly firm than the idli batter. If your idli batter is already watery, then no need to add any water. Add just rawa or maida and make a thick semi solid dough. Even you can drop the batter by hand. If the batter is having more water than required, then it will spread on oil and become flat.
Try once again and let me know the result.
Your website is wonderful, everyday ur blog kolams only decorate my home n gives welcome look. Awsome kolams n all like my kolam
