A delightful treat for any curry meal , party or starter.
- 1/2 cup(s) Chana Dal
- 1/2 cup(s) Split Moong Dal
- 2 Medium Sized Boiled and Mashed Potatoes
- 2 Green chilies, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon(s) Chopped Ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) Crushed Black Pepper
- 2 teaspoon(s) Crushed Coriander
- 1 litre(s) Oil to fry
Wash and soak chana and moong dal in four cups of water for at least four hours or more, after soaking the dal will be about double the volume.
Blend dal coarsely, add water if needed to blend but not more than 2-3 tablespoons. I use a food processor; it does a good job for blending dal coarsely without much water.
Next mix all the ingredients together; this will make soft and crumbly dough. Divide the dough into 7-8 equal parts and make them into patties with a centre hole.
Heat the oil in saucepan over medium high heat. Par deep-fry the patties until they are light brown - about 5 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before double-frying.
Increase oil heat and fry them again until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with pickles or chutney.
