Masoor dal pakodi

Chilled winter evening with a cup of tea and pakodi ohh wonder full isn't it. I know most of you will agree with me . For me pakodi s sre the best combination with tea or coffee and rasam rice umm yumm. Normally I make pakodis with chick pea flour and sliced onion s or any other vegetables like cabbage, spinach. This recipe is different from normal pakodi recipe freshly ground dal paste gives a great aroma to this pakodis. Lets check how I made them.

INGREDIENTS:---
Masoor dal --- 1 cup
Chana dal --- 1/4 cup
Rice flour --- 1 tab sp
Onion  ---- 1/2 cup chopped
Green chillies -- 3 chopped
Ginger  --- 1 tea sp chopped
Coriander leaves --- 1/4 cup chopped
Mint leaves  ---- 1 tab sp chopped
cumin seeds  ---- 1 tea sp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
METHOD:---
1. Wash and soak both dals in enough water for 4 hours.
2. Drain water (set this water a side so that we can use little water while grinding rest of the water you can use in making of rasam or any other curries) and grind in to a fine paste by adding little water.
3. Add all other ingredients mix well to combine every thing.
4. Heat oil in a deep frying pan.Once oil turns hot reduce the flame to medium.
5. Drop small portions of dal mixture in to hot oil and  fry till they turn in to golden.
6. Remove from oil and drain the oil on a kitchen towel.
Serve hot with green chutney and cup of tea.
This my recipe for day 6 in Blogging Marathon 12th edition group 2 lets check the Marathon page.
