  • Soak green moong dal for 4-6 hours.
  • Blend moong dal using minimum amount of water into a very coarse batter.
  • Add the remaining ingredients; zeera, onions, green chilies, ginger paste, coriander leaves, green onion, turmeric powder, red chili powder, curry leaves and salt. Mix well.
  • Make small balls out of the mix. If you face difficulty in making ball that means you have added more water while blending moong dal. In that case you can add 1-2 tbsp of besan  to your batter.
  • Deep fry these balls in hot oil on medium flame.
  • Serve hot with any chutney.
