Chana Dal Pakora (Bengal Gram Fritter)

chana dal pakora

Chana dal pakora was our rainy day treat today. We enjoyed these deep fried goodies with our morning cup of tea. I enjoy chana dal in all forms whether it's curry or along with lauki (bottle gourd) and these pakora are no exception.
Recipe of chana dal pakora/ pakoda
1 cup chana dal (split Bengal gram)
3 green chillies- chopped
Fresh coriander leaves- chopped
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
Salt to taste
1 onion- finely chopped
1 inch piece ginger- finely chopped
Oil to deep fry
1. Wash and soak chana dal overnight. Drain.
2. Grind chana dal to a smooth paste.
3. Add rest of the ingredients except oil to the chana dal batter. Beat well.
4. Heat oil in a kadhai/wok. When the oil is hot enough, turn the heat to medium. Drop small portions of the batter in the oil. Deep fry till pakora turn golden brown from all sides.
5. Drain chana dal pakora on an absorbent paper and serve hot with chutney or ketchup.
