Kunukku is made with rice and lentils and fried like bonda. Actually, we use the left over Adai batter to make kunukku. Some children does not like to eat adai. If you transform the adai batter and make like this in the evening, it is a perfect snacks for kids. My mother used to make kunukku with the left over Adai batter. It is a great snacks for children as it is rich in proteins.
