Punugulu recipe | Andhra style punugulu recipe – Leftover Idli batter bonda. A perfect tea-time snack, recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Punugulu is a popular tea time snack in Andhra, made by soaking rice, urad dal and fermenting it. We can make punugulu using left over batter also. It is similar to the Madurai Vellaiappams. Many times amma makes vellaiappam using left over idli batter.

Can I make punugulu without fermenting the batter

You can make it without fermenting the batter, by adding 2-3 tbsp of sour curd to the batter. But fermented batter gives softness and fluffiness to the punugulu.

Always use thick idli batter, dosa batter will be little runny and observes more flour, which in turn makes the bonda hard and rubbery.
