Lentil Fritters are one of the most loved-fried snacks in all over India and many other parts of the world too. But Indian spices give an enhancing flavour to these fritters. Before I posted relish Bengal Gram Fritters and BENGAL GRAM FRITTERS CURRY / DALER BORAR TORKARI. Let's tell about the little bombs, red lentils fritters. I love the small pieces of onion and green chilli, that come in mouth with every bite. Quick to make, a great snack in a rainy evening. These crispy fritters was my dad's favourite one, and my mom usually made these on rainy evenings, we all enjoyed with a bowl of puffed rice and pipping hot tea. Dedicate this cruspy munchy mouthwatering snack to my "Guru".
1 Cup Red Lentil (masoor dal)
A pinch of Baking Soda
1/2 of a Medium Onion (finely chopped)
2 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
2 tbsps finely chopped Coriander Leaves
2 cloves of Garlic (minced)
1/3 tsp minced Ginger
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/3 tsp Red Chilli powder
1 tsp Chaat Masala
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Wash and soak red lentil in water for 2 hours.
Now mix all other ingredients, except oil with the lentil paste. Beat nicely for 2-3 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan, Keep dropping 1 tbsp of mixture in hot oil. First fry them on low-medium heat and slowly take it to high heat.
Fry till fritters turn into golden brown. Remove from oil and place those fritters on a papper towel to absorb the excess oil from it.
Serve hot as a tea-time snack or just as a side dish with dal-rice.
Subho Vijaya Dashami or Happy Dassera to all of my blogger friends.
