Step 2: Mix the soaked Tapioca (Saggubiyyam) with Rice flour to the thickness required for frying in oil (dough should not be too loose nor too thick) 

Note : Do not add water as it will absorb more Oil. Instead of Rice flour we can add Maida for spongy type Punugulu.

Meanwhile, preheat required Oil in a pan to fry.

Step 3: Add Cumin Seeds, Red Chilly Powder or GreenChillies, chopped Curry Leaves, Onions and Salt.
