Punugulu (with dosa batter)

Next recipe for my brunch theme is a one pot meal with a snack. In this brunch I served Arisi paruppu sadam which is one pot meal from Tamilnadu cuisine. Usually we serve this rice with yogurt. But here I made some curd rice and punugulu to make this meal little heavy, because this is brunch. Punugulu is a favorite snack in Andhra pradesh, we make this with different ingredients. But originally punugulu is made with urad dal with a small amount of rice . We make this snack with left over dosa batter also. Usually we mix maida (all purpose flour) to dosa batter to bring the consistency. But here I gave a twist to that, I added pancake mix in the place of maida. Now they turned out soft spongey delicious.. this batter consistency should be like pakodi batter. These punugulu is a best combination with rasam rice, pulihora. They tasted wonderful with arisi paruppu sadam also..
Let's check the recipe.... 
Dosa batter  ---  1 cup
Pancake mix  ---  1/4 cup
Onion  ---  1 big chopped
