Ingredients to make Dal pakora

  • 1 cup chana dal washed and soaked
  • 1/2 cup coriander
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 - 3 green chilies
  • 2 inch ginger"
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder

How to make Dal pakora

  1. Wash and soak the dal in water for 4 to 5 hours.
  2. Drain and add in a blender. Add in green chillies, ginger, and cumin seeds/powder (whatever you are using)
  3. Grind into a coarse paste. Add a very little water. Add in the fresh chopped coriander.
  4. Now add onion, salt, chilli powder and mix well.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Put some oil on your hands and take little of this batter and make round shapes.
  6. Heat sufficient oil for deep frying and make sure the flame is on medium.
  7. Slowly add the pakora and fry them until they are nice golden in colour.
  8. Don't worry if they break a little, use a slotted ladle to extract and place on tissue paper to absorb the excess oil.
  9. Tastes best when served and eaten hot with green chutney.
My Tip: Heat the oil by keeping the flame on medium, ensuring that when you fry the pakoras they are cooked throughout.
