Pesara Punukulu | Moong Dal Fritters, Perugu Pesara Punukulu

Sharing is caring!

For the final day of this edition, I am sharing another variety of fritters that can be offered as prasadam. This doesn’t have onions and has Urad dal mixed in to make it more healthy. I already have another version of Moong Dal Fritters, that had onions. While today’s recipe is slightly different. I also ended up making a curd version of the vadas.
This edition things have been slow in happening. I am a day behind with my posts. I am happy that I managed to do all of them. I decided I got to gear myself better for the next edition. Let’s see how things work out.

Pesara Punukulu

Ingredients Needed

Moong Dal / Pesara pappu – 3/4 cup
Urad Dal – 1/4 cup
Green Chilies – 2 medium
Ginger – 1″
Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

How to make the Punukulu

Wash and soak the dals for 1 – 2 hrs.

Drain and along with all the ingredients grind to a smooth paste. Add salt and make a thick paste.

Heat a kadai with oil and drop in balls using a spoon. Cook on both sides and drain.


Since the batter is sticking, it’s always better to handle this with two spoons.
