Add-ons to the batter is also your choice, can just make them plain with cumin and salt or add chopped green chilies, onions and coriander leaves. My mom adds chopped spinach or fenugreek leaves to these, they too taste good.
If you feel the batter is runny, add poha / attukulu powder and grind and set side for 10 mins. It becomes thicker like shown below. Now adjust the consistency, if required, can add very little water or can proceed as usual.Check by making 1 or 2 ponugulu, if they are hard need to add little water. if they are not crispy or they come out oily, it means the batter is still runny
7. Fry them till golden color and transfer them on to a kitchen tissue.
