Kunukku Recipe – Adai Mavu Kunukku

October 1, 2018 Snacks / Starters  No comments

Kunukku is a simple deep fried snack made with rice and lentils. This is made from left over adai batter. If u have some left over adai batter this can be made in no time. So next time when u grind adai batter, plan to keep a small amount of it separately for this humble evening or after school snack. U might have to add a little bit of water to make adai, so it is better to keep aside some of the batter if u want to make this snack. I have used this Adai Batter as the base. Kunukku can also be made with urad dal batter. Shall post that recipe soon 🙂

Vazhaipoo Vadai has been in my list since a long time. Finally made it. This is quite similar to Masal Vadai with a few changes in the ingredients. And as the name suggests Vazhaipoo is the star of this recipe. Vazhaipoo or Banana Flower is a veggie that all might like, especially because of its long cleaning process. I had recently posted about how to clean it. Once you are done with that process this Vadai is an easy one. Trust me these vadais with Vazhaipoo are so crispy.

Zucchini Fritters – Courgette Fritters

January 30, 2018 Kids BaySnacks / Starters  2 comments

Zucchini(in American English) or Courgette(in British English) is a summer squash veggie. I always had a doubt if both the names meant the same one. Finally googled it and found out. I get it here in the name of Courgette. Many of them know by the name Zucchini. I use it quite often in making Quesadilla. So this time tried this Zucchini Fritters for a change. It tasted awesome. It is a perfect after school snack for kids or even during tea time. I saw this recipe in a magazine and changed it a bit to suit our taste buds. These fritters will be crispy outside and soft inside. The best part is u can shallow fry this.
