Recipes of Palakkad
If anybody knows to make adai (not the verumarisi one), just put the same combination (with or without thengai) in oil and lo presto, the kunukku is ready. You can add curry & coriander leaves, onion, garlic etc., to flavour it up. This is what is coined as kara vadai, apparently.

There is another type of kunukku in which the multi grains are mixed and are boiled with the grains half ground.

Both types are lip smacking.
