Ingredients Quantity
Bengal gram /Chana Dal 2 cup
Green chillies 7
Garlic 7-8 flakes
Ginger 1/2-inch piece
Cumin Seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Fennel seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves 1/2 bunch
Rava/ Semolina 1/2 cup
Onion, chopped 2


Method :

1. Clean, wash and soak the chana dal for 4 hours or overnight, Drain the water and grind the dal coarsely. Don’t add water while grinding the dal, because we need coarsely ground dal for this recipe. If the dal is very finely grinded and a bit thin, pakora won’t be a crispier. take out the ground dal in a bowl. Now grind ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, green chilly and fennel seeds  coarsely.

2. Add the ground spices into the dal.

3. Then add chopped onion, coriander leaves, rava and salt. Mix it well and make a small balls like (ping pong balls), flatten it with your palms. Do the same with the rest of the mixture.

4. Heat the oil in a pan and deep fried balls on a slow flame till golden brown and crisp from both the sides.

5. Serve hot with your favourite chutney, sauce or dip.

6. Enjoy!!
