PUNKULU OR PUNGULU Is one of the famous deep fried snack which can prepare with Dosa batter..For,this recipe left over dosa batter may works out well instead fresh one..Old batter means which kept in fridge for 2-3 days,suits for this recipes perfectly..In the ingredients also,you can see some differences when compared with another Punugulu recipes..It means have lots of options for this recipe..For example you can add some soaked chanadal to batter or you can add black pepper corns like me..But It`s an optional...If you want very tasty punukulu,then mix all the ingredients to the batter and keep it in room temperature for 4-5 hrs...Fermenting gives a best taste.Along with this punukulu Iam sharing a Tea recipe which I learned from my mother.She prepares tea only in the morning which is the signature recipe(this one) of her.A must try,If you are Tea lover:) The combination of both these two is simply awesome...Please try next time..

May be half of the people in world loves Tea I feel.In my school and college days Iam also a good liker of Tea which AMMA prepares in home..I strongly says no one can prepare the tea like my mom.(Is it over confidence or love on my amma??!!) She prefers to buy pure,fresh buffalo milk instead of packets and without adding water she prefers to make Tea...I saw some people who loves to sip a full glass of tea..Those may satisfy with only half glass If they tasted my mom`s hand Tea..The secret behind her Tea is adding ginger skin and cardamoms..I really love the aroma of ginger and flavour of cardamom while sipping..Huhh!!!! It`s really a unique happy feeling while tasting which cannot express in words..MOMS recipes are always best and Iam feeling very happy to share another recipe of my MOM..
