Easy Kunukku

Ingredients

  • Idli batter – 1 big bowl
  • Maida or rava – 2 tablespoons
  • Cooking soda – a pinch
  • Onion – 1
  • Green chillies – 2
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Asafotida Powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Oil – for deep frying

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. Here is the recipe:

Directions

  1. Chop onion and green chillies finely.
  2. Add maida or rave to the idli batter and mix well. If necessary add little water to make the batter flow easily from a spoon when poured. Add a pinch of salt along with cooking soda and chopped onion, green chillies and curry leaves to the batter.
  3. In a kadai put a teaspoon oil and when it is hot add mustard. When it pops up add asafotida powder and pour over the batter and mix well.
  4. Heat oil in a kadai and take a small laddle of batter and pour it in the hot oil. Fry till it turns light brown.
  5. Serve with chutney.
