¼ cup
Chopped Green Chilly

Curry leaves

Salt
As required
Oil
For deep fry

Procedure:
1. Mix idly batter and wheat flour with salt.
2. Then add cumin seeds, finely chopped onion, chopped green chillies, chopped coriander and curry leaves.
3. Mix them well. If  the batter is too thick you can add little amount of water or if the batter is not thick you can add wheat flour to bring the batter into a thick consistency. The batter should be thicker than idli batter (the batter should fall as a ball).
4. Heat the oil in a pan, wet the hands with water and drop a gooseberry size balls from the batter.
5. Fry them well on all sides till they becomes golden in color and crisp.
