Now what can I do with that 4 ladles of dosa batter that is left over. I can’t make dosa with it , I can’t throw it away either . So My mum suggested we make kunnuku or panniyaram out of it.
Add some chopped onions , rice flour and other veggies to enhance the taste. Heat up the oil in a kadaai , pour small ladles of this batter and fry. Voila!! Hot onion fritters is ready.
Takes 5 minutes to prepare and 10+ minutes to make the fritters. The recipe I’m gonna share can yield about 25 fritters. A perfect tea time snack. If there are any leftover fritters you can have it with curd rice in the night :D.
- I had about four ladles of dosa batter that could make 2 medium sized dosas.
- To this batter add all the ingredients and mix. Make sure they are not too runny in consistency. you should be able to scoop it with a ladle.
- Adding salt is optional because as it is the dosa will be salted. But when you add other ingredients , the salt level might reduce and might make the fritters less salty. So add little salt after you mix the batter.
- Take a kadaai , keep it on medium high heat. Add in oil , it should cover 1 inch of the kadaai.
- Add a small dollop of the batter and check if the oil is hot enough to make the fritters. When you do this , the batter should immediately pop up to the surface and start frying.
- Start adding dollops of the batter into the oil. Depending on the size of the kadaai , add the dollops. You don’t want to add too many in a single batch. Fry 4-5 fritters at a time.
- When you spoon in the dollops keep the heat in sim , once you are done increase the heat. If you fry the fritters in low heat , it will absorb too much oil and the fritters will be soggy.
- Remove the finished fritters in a tissue paper and take out the excess oil. Serve it hot with a chutney of your choice or with sauce during tea time.
