How to make Moong Dal Pakoda

  1. Soak moong dal for 1 hour. Grind coarsely with green chilies, ginger, garlic, few curry leaves, and cumin seeds with adding water. Remove to a bowl.
  2. Grind Chana dal to a powder with 1 tbsp water. Combine it with moong dal mixture along with onion, coriander leaves, sesame seeds, few curry leaves (shredded), red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt to taste. (Batter should be thick).
  3. Heat oil in deep wide pot/kadhai. Drop the batter in medium hot oil and fry till golden in color.

My Tip:

Alternatively, some Pakode can be stuffed with cheese. Before frying, drape the batter over a cube of cheese and seal well.
