Aku Kura Punukulu.

Spinach, fenugreek and cilantro are mixed with besan and made into batter with yogurt. The mixture is then dropped into hot oil and deep fried till brown in color. Serve mixed greens fritters as a tea time snack or with any pickle rice.
Makes: around 10 Mixed Greens Fritters.


Besan 1 Cup
Yogurt 1/2 Cup
Onion 1 Small
Sooji 2 Tbsps
Cilantro few Leaves
Fenugreek Leaves Few Pinches
Spinach few Leaves
Green Chiles 2

Salt to taste
Oil for Deep Frying

Method of preparation:

Remove stems, wash and finely chop green chiles.
Wash and roughly chop spinach and cilantro leaves.
Separate and thoroughly wash fenugreek leaves.
Peel and slice the onion.

In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and make it into a thick pourable batter.
Use few drops of water if necessary.

Heat oil in deep frying pan on medium low heat.
Drop small lime sized portions of the prepared batter into hot oil.
Let the bhaji turn brown on all sides.
Remove the bhaji onto a absorbent paper.
Repeat the same with any remaining batter.
Serve mixed greens fritters immediately.
Notes: Make sure to deep fry on a medium low heat to allow insides of the fritters to cook.

Suggestions: If the fritters are not cooked properly, drop them back into oil and deep fry on low heat till done.
Variations: You can also add soaked sago to the batter if you wish.
Other Names: Aku Kura Punukulu, Mixed Greens Fritters, Mixed Greens Bhaji.
