About Punugulu (Idli Batter Bonda )
Punugulu or Bonda is a deep-fried South Indian potato snack with sweet and savoury variations depending on region. The most common variation is aloo bonda, with potato replaced by sweet potato, tapioca, grated pineapple, green peas, paneer, or other ingredients.
Idli batter is made by soaking polished parboiled rice and decorticated black gramme in water for 4 hours at 30 1 °C. The soaked mass was ground in a grinder with plenty of water.
Ingredients For Punugulu Recipe
Rice flour and cornflour are especially useful because they fry up crisper than wheat flour. They also absorb less moisture and fat during the frying process, resulting in less greasy products. This is why rice flour is frequently used in tempura because it produces a thin, crispy, dry crust.
Onions are considered a basic ingredient or the foundation of Indian cooking and are used to make any gravy, curry, or bhuna dish. The flavour and aroma of onion transforms any ordinary dish into a mouthwatering and delectable one.

Frequently Asked Questions
When was Bonda invented?
Manasollasa, a 12th-century Sanskrit encyclopaedia compiled by Someshvara III, who ruled from present-day Karnataka, mentions a bonda recipe.
Which idli batter is best for making punugulu?
The batter for urad dal must be soft, light, and fluffy. To make soft and fluffy idlis, I recommend grinding both urad dal and rice separately. Fermentation is also aided by a well-ground urad dal batter.
