Here's a short video on how to make Punugul/Idli Batter Bonda

Take the idli batter in a mixing bowl. If the batter is refrigerated, let it come to room temperature.

Add the rava/sooji, salt to the batter.

Add finely chopped onion, green chillies, ginger, coriander leaves, curry leaves and cumin seeds to the batter.

Mix everything really well. Check the consistency at this stage.

The batter should neither be too thick nor too thin. If the batter is too thin add some rice flour and mix really well. If the batter is too thick adjust the consistency by adding 1 or 2 tsp of water.

Heat oil in a kadai/pan for frying the punugulu. 

Using your fingers take a small portion of the batter, shape it to rough ball and drop it gently in the medium-hot oil. You can also use a spoon to scoop the batter and add it to the oil.

Fry the punugulu in medium flame only. When the sides becomes pale golden and crisp, turn them to cook on the other side.

Fry the punugulu to a beautiful golden color on all sides. Once it is done, transfer it to a paper napkin to remove excess oil.

Similarly fry the rest of the punugulu in small batches.

Yes, super tempting evening snacks is ready to be enjoyed.
