Adai Kunukku / Kunukku / Spicy Lentil Fritters - South Indian Recipe

Adai kunukku is a deep fried snack made from  the combination of lentils; can also prepare using the leftover Adai Dosa batter.

In this recipe I have prepared this snack using my leftover Thinai Adai Dosa Batter; you can even do this using your plain Adai Dosa Batter also.

Try this protein rich snack and give your feed back!


Thinai Adai Dosa / Adai Dosa batter - 2 to 3 cups
Red onion - 1 finely chopped
Green chillies - 2 to 3 (finely chopped)
Corriander leaves - 1 tbsp (finely chopped)

Rice flour - 1 or 2 tbsp (if needed)
Oil - for deep frying


Add chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, salt and rice flour (if needed) in the Adai batter.  Mix well.

Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying, take a lemon sized batter and drop it into the oil. Fry that till golden brown and crisp.

Serve hot with Coconut Chutney or Tomato Sauce.


For healthier version, You can prepare this in Kuzhipaniyaram pan instead of deep frying.

Adjust salt, spice and the amount of onion according to your taste.
