Hey guys!! In winter we all crave to have some hot food. Though fritters are famous for monsoons I love to have it in winters also. These fritters can be made with your lunch as a side dish or for your dinner. I have used my homemade schezwan chutney in this recipe. Link is added below for the same. You can use ready schezwan chutney also. It is very easy to make these fritters and all you need to do is grind and mix all ingredients together. You can also make it for your kitty parties as a starter if you want to keep it simple yet appealing. Serve it with hot tea or coffee. So lets get cooking…
Yellow Moong Dal Split – 1/2 cup
Chana Dal/ Split Bengal Gram- 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Green Chilli paste – 1 tbsp
Garam Masala – 2 tsp
Onion (Sliced) – 1 large
Capsicum (finely chopped)- 1 small
Fresh Coriander Leaves (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
Schezwan Chutney – 2 tbsp
Soda bi carb – 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Water – as required
Oil- for frying
1) Soak both the dals together for approximately an hour. After an hour strain and grind both the dals coarsely. Add around 3-4 tbsp water for grinding.
2) Take the grind dals in a mixing bowl add the ginger-garlic, green chilli paste to it, Add the onions, capsicum, coriander leaves, salt, garam masla, schezwan chutney and finally the soda bi carb and mix it all together.
3) The batter should be thick. If needed at this stage you can add 1-2 tbsp of water not more.
4) In a wok take oil and let it become warm. Once ready add the fritters by dropping the batter spoon by spoon or using your hand in small portions into the oil. Keep the flame at medium so that the fritters are cooked from the inside and crisp from the outside. Serve hot with chutney.
