punugulu recipepunugulu recipe | how to make andhra punugulu with idli dosa batter with step by step photo and video recipe. traditionally these tasty fritters recipes are prepared as a street food especially in andhra and tamilnadu beaches. basically it is consumed as popular evening snack with a cup of masala chai or with a filter coffee. but i personally enjoy this as a side dish to my dal rice or rasam rice combination for my weekend lunch.

in this recipe i have used leftover dosa batter, however in some recipes for punugulu involve preparing custom made dosa batter for it. also some of the recipe may involve just urad dal batter without the rice and urad dal combination, very similar to medu vada recipe. however i personally prefer to prepare it with left over idli batter instead preparing a specific batter for it. this not only saves the time to prepare it but also gives me different taste with the combination of rice and urad dal batter. otherwise if it is just a urad dal batter, it would be a same recipe as medu vada or mysore bonda recipe. also i personally reckon idli batter is much better compared to dosa as it is more thick and rough in consistency.

how to make andhra punugulu with idli dosa batterthe end result is very similar to the south indian medu vada which is mainly prepared with urad dal batter. while preparing punugulu recipe with leftover dosa batter is extremely simple, yet i would like to add some tips and recommendations. firstly, use fermented dosa or idli batter to make soft and crispy vada. also, adding onions and green chilli is optional, you can skip it completely. finally, fry on medium flame to cook from inside and crisp from out, also make sure to add more rice flour to adjust the consistency of batter.

finally i would like to highlight my other snacks recipes collection with this recipe post of punugulu recipe. it includes recipes like, golibaje, masala vada, palak bread vada, banana buns, dahi bread roll, beetroot cutlet, paneer bread rolls, onion pakoda, and ribbon pakoda recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection from my blog like,
