Instructions

  1. Mix together all ingredients with 50g of Astra to form a thick batter. Take 250ml of oil and mix with the remaining 150g of Astra and add to a pan and heat. Once the oil is, drop a spoonful of the batter to the center of the pan and with the help of a long stick start shaping the mixture to form the konda kavum shape. Let the kavum fry by gently splashing oil over it. Once it turns golden brown in color remove from pan and keep aside on a tissue paper to drain excess oil.
