Moong Daal Bhajiya-Pakoda-Bhajji

With the rain pouring in almost every evening in Bangalore, it is perfect time to enjoy a cup of hot Masala Chai and something fried, hot and tasty..If the weather is so in your city also( and even if it not) it is time for Moong Daal Bhajiya. What I love about these bhajiya is, ingredients are easy and readily available and the preparation is also very easy!



Ingredients:
1. 2 cup yellow Moong daal, soaked in water for 4-5 hours/ overnight. (So if your plan is to make the bhajiya for tea time, soak the daal in morning)
2. 2-3 tbsp fresh coriander leaves chopped
3. 1 green chilli, chopped
4. 1/2 inch piece of ginger
5. 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
6. 1 tbsp red chilli powder
7. 1/2 tbsp jeera
8. Salt to taste
9. Oil to deep fry bhajiya

Preparation:
1. Drain water from soaked moong daal and add it to the mixer jar
2. Add coriander leaves, green chilli, ginger, red chilli powder, turmeric, jeera and salt to it and grind it together to fine paste. Avoid using water, unless it is too dry. We need think mix for bhajiya
3. Heat oil for frying
4. Now this is the trick for bhajiyas to turn soft and puffy inside, add 2 tbsp of hot oil to the daal mixture and mix it with spoon in one direction for 8-10 rounds
5. Drop small portions of daal mixture using spoon in hot oil to fry bhajiya. If you want to make bhajiya using hand, then soften hand with water and drop small portions of mixture in hot oil carefully.
6. Fry till crisp and light brown from outside
Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney
