Kunukku is traditionally prepared by soaking dhals and rice and grinding with chillies and salt and the batter is deep fried like bonda. But for a quick version, we can make it with left over idli / dosa batter also.Here is the recipe:

Ingredients needed :
  • Idli batter - 2 cups
  • Maida - 1 tbsp.
  • Rawa - 1 tbsp.
  • Onion - 1
  • Green chillies - 1
  • Curry leaves - One string
  • Hing powder - 1/4 tsp.
  • Oil - for deep frying
Method :

Chop onion and green chillies finely. Add maida or rawa to the idli batter and mix well. If necessary add little water to make the batter flow easily from a spoon when poured. Add a pinch of salt + hing powder + chopped onion + green chillies and curry leaves to the batter. Heat oil in a kadai and take a small spoon of batter and pour it in the hot oil. Fry till it turns light brown. Serve with chutney.


  1. The name is definitely new to me but my mom makes something like this but with no Rawa... Good entry...

  2. Hi Ramya , adding Rawa gives more crispyness ..
    it is not compulsory...
