Mixed dal bhajiyas/fritters are easy to make and yummy. So lets check out the recipe and enjoy the monsoons with these yummy and tasty fritters…
Split Green Moong Dal/Chilka Green Dal – 1 cup
Yellow Moong Dal – 1/4 cup
Urad Dal – 1/4 cup

1) Soak the three dals and rice for 5 hours.
2) Strain and semi crush the soaked dals and rice in a mixie jar using 2 tbsp water.
3) In a bowl take the semi crushed dals and rice mixture, chopped onions, ginger garlic green chille paste, chat masala, gram flour , semolina, coriander leaves, whole coriander seeds and salt and mix it all gently. Leave aside for 10 minutes.
4) After 10 mins add 1 tbsp of water to make the batter little thin if required. The batter should be medium thick, not too flowly so as to drop in the oil without breaking apart.
5) In a deep bottom vessel add oil and let it become hot. You can check the consistency of the oil by adding little of the fritter/bhajiya batter. If it comes up immediately the oil is ready.
6) Now add the fritters/bhajiya in the hot oil by using a spoon or your hands in small amounts. Let it cook well. The flame should be medium.
