Chilkewali Dal ka Bhajia
Homemade lentil fritters are one of the most popular deep-fried snacks. Their authentic flavour is tempting.
    Preparation Method
  1. Thoroughly wash and soak beans for 6 hours.
  2. Gently rub off the skin. Drain. Keep aside the water. Use it for grinding if required.
  3. Grind the beans to a coarse, thick batter of dropping consistency. Whisk till frothy.
  4. Mix in rest of the ingredients. Add salt and hot oil at the time of deep-frying.
  5. In a frying pan, heat oil on a high flame.
  6. Take small portions of the batter. Whisk it at a fast pace to make it light and fluffy.
  7. With wet fingertips, drop few, small round balls of the batter in hot oil.
  8. Deep fry till light golden brown in colour.
  9. Remove and drain them. Repeat for rest of the batter. Serve hot with coriander or khajur-imli chutney.
    Additional Note
  • These bhajias can be made without removing the skin.
