Black Cumin seeds(kalonji/kali jeera) : 2 tsp.
Whole wheat/white/corn flour for binding
A pinch of baking soda
Salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying
Fresh coriander leaves : a bunch (blanched)
- Soak masoor dal for 1 hour in cold water. Drain whole water from dal and grind into a fine paste without using water or if needed use 2 tbsp. water.
- Mix all other ingredients into the paste except oil and flour. lastly mix wheat flour to make it a thick paste.
- Heat enough oil to fry, you can use your hand or use a spoon to drop little of the paste into the oil and form any kind of shape, round or long, big or small.
- When it turns brown in one side, flip to the other side. Take it off when both sides turn brown.
Serve immediately after frying with some ketchup or chilli sauce. It tastes great when hot......................enjoy
