Punugulu (Idli/Dosa batter snack)

Punugulu is an Andhra Pradesh snack (Southern part of India) which is prepared with Idli/Dosa batter and spices. This is an instant snack which can be prepared very easily at home. This toothsome dish is very crispy outside and soft inside.

Whenever, I want to make an instant snack in the evening, this tasty dish will be first option that comes to my mind. I learnt this simple and easy recipe from my mother.  She learnt it from her aunt as her maternal uncle’s wife (aunt) used to prepare punugulu for her whenever she goes to their house during her school/college holidays.  Though it is an Andhra cuisine, it is also very famous dish in other southern parts as well since early days.

As it will be very crispy outside, it will be in our favorite list always. Here is the simple and easy recipe of it.
