  • Soak Rice and Dhal seperately along with red chillies for 2 hrs.
  • Drain the water and grind rice along with red chillies,coconut and asafoetida powder to a paste using very little water.Don't grind too smooth.
  • Now add the drained Toor Dhal and just pulse few times till it blends with the rice well.
  • Heat oil in a Kadai and drop small portions of the batter and fry in medium flame till golden brown in colour. Remove and drain in paper towel.
        1.The minimum soaking time for rice and dhal needed is 1 hr.
        2.The right consistency of batter is important to get perfect kunuku.
        3.The fresh coconut used in this recipe makes it extra special,so
