    sruthi, i make a couple of different snacks with borugulu…am sharing them with you…hope you’ll like it…
    one is a typical street side style
    Just toss in borugulu, finely chopped onions, finely chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, salt, finely chopped coriander, fried channa dal roasted peanuts and if you wish a little lemon juice. Just remember to add onions, tomatoes before serving :d

    Other is what mom makes at home quite often…
    Fry atukulu in oil and remove to a big bowl. Roast the peanuts in remaining oil and remove to the same bowl. Now add borugulu, green chilli chopped, onion chopped, putnalu, red chilli powder and salt to the ingredients in the bowl, Toss and serve :)

      Hey Pavitra,
      I know they both taste amazing, I used to have it from the street vendors back in India and somehow I didn’t try making them at home. But now I’ll definitely try your version. But the one with atukulu we make it often at home and they are just delicious. But your version is slightly different will definitely try it out some time. Thanks a lot for sharing such yummy recipes!
