Cook's Hideout: Punukulu

September 17, 2006


I made punukulu for our Sunday afternoon football snack. My husband was a little confused on which team to support between NJ Giants and Philadelpia Eagles. Both of us came to Philadelphia for our Masters 5 years ago and we still consider it our first home. Its been 3 years that we moved to NJ, but Philly still feels closer, may be because we got to see America through Philly's eyes for the first time.. Anyway finally Giants won for my husband's disappointment.
Coming back to my punukulu, these are very quick and easy to make.


Rice flour - 1 cup
Curd/ yogurt - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 medium, chopped fine
Green chilies - 4 chopped
Salt - to taste

  • Mix flour and curd with little water to form slightly thick batter, should not be runny.
  • Add salt, chopped onions, green chilies, mix well.
  • Make small pakoras of about 1 tablespoon batter and deep fry till golen brown on all sides.
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or chutney powder.
We had our afternoon snack along with all-Indian Parle-G biscuits.
