Kunuku - Crispy lentil fritters
Kunuku - Does the name sound funny? I am not a big fan of kunuku. But I like to have it once in a while for a change.We usually make it when we have some left over adai(savory crepes) batter. Instead of deep frying, I used a kuzhipaniyaram (appe) pan and shallow fried the batter.

Oil-To deep fry or shallow fry
If you are deep frying, heat sufficient oil in a pan. Take some left over adai batter. Shape them into small uneven balls and deep fry till golden brown.
If you are using a kuzhipaniyaram pan, grease it with oil. Heat the pan. Drop some batter in each hole and drizzle oil around the corners. When one side turns golden brown, flip and cook the other side. It takes a while to become brown and crispy. So do not be in a hurry to turn them around.
Serve hot with ketchup!
