Method:
  1. In a mixing bowl, pour the idli batter. Add semolina and give a good stir. Add finely chopped green chili, curry leaves, cumin seeds, chopped coriander leaves and give the batter a good stir. We don't need to add salt as the batter has already salt in it. If you have store bought batter and it doesn't have salt, then add salt and mix well
  2. Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot enough, drop a small pinch of batter to check the readiness of the oil. If the batter raises up in the oil, then the oil is in perfect heat. Keep the flame in medium and gently drop 4-5 dumplings out of the batter using a spoon or clean hands. We don't need to make a perfect circle shape. When the dumplings gets cooked, it will raise up in the oil as the batter is fermented nicely already
  3. Deep fry the idli batter fritters in oil till they are golden brown and nicely crispy
  4. Serve the Punugulu (Idli Batter Fritters), hot with your favorite dip. Coconut chutney, green chutney or even ketchup would be a great complement for this awesome dish.
