Spicy Lentil Fritters|Kunukku

"Kunukku" or spicy Lentil Fritters is another traditional recipe.It is a perfect fried snack for a rainy day.You either make the dough specially for this or you can even make this with left over "Adai"mavu.Either way it tastes great .
You can deep fry it according to the original recipe or pour it in the kuzhipaniyaram tawa  in which you avoid the oil part of it.I have deep fried it now according to the original recipe!!!!!


  You Will Need
  • Tur dhal
  • Channa dhal
  • Rice
  • Urad dhal

Wash and soak the above for two hours.

Grind it along with 
  • Eight Red chillies
  • Salt 
  • Asafoetida

Grind in to a Coarse paste.

Add some Chopped onions,curry leaves,coriander leaves and Some scraped coconut.Mix well.

Heat oil in deep pan and scoop out some dough in your hand and once the oil is hot enough drop small dumplings in the oil.It need not be perfect rounds.

Fry till golden brown and drop it in a oil absorbing tissue and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea especially on a rainy day!!!
