Whole Greengram Kunukku

Kunukku are prepared usually with lentils and its such a delicious, crispy fritters from lentils they tastes amazing for snacks with coconut chutney or simply with tomato ketchup, my mom used to prepare this delectable kunukku even with leftover adai batter by adding more onions, chopped green chillies and crushed ginger to the leftover batter and this kunukku will ressembles quite similar as pakodas..Kunukkus are quite a easy fritters prepared basically with soaked lentils and rice, for a change i tried out kunukkus with dry whole green grams,soaked overnite which i have grounded as bit coarse batter in a blender and finally added chopped onions, green chillies and ginger pieces and deep fried in oil...U can also add handful of finely chopped vegetables to this kunukku to make them more delicious...These sorts of deep fried snacks are always welcome with evening tea while its winter or rainy..This delicious, crispy kunukkus goes directly to Sunday Snacks-Spill the beans guest hosted by Priya of Akshayapaatram and MLLA-13th helping guest hosted by Sunshinemom, event started by SusanCFK-Evening Snacks guest hosted by Divya of Dil Se, event started by Sharmi...
