Yellow split peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small sized
Green chilly - 2
Fennel - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 2 pinches
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry


Soak dal for 1 hour and drain the water completely.

Take 2 tsp full of dal and keep aside to add later. Grind the remaining dal coarsely without water.

Add the unground dal, finely chopped onion, green chilly, fennel, asafoetida and salt.

Mix well. Take a lemon sized ball and press between hands to make it flat. Deep fry in oil until it become golden brown and crispy.

Serve hot with chutney.

If you like really spicy then add whole red chiles while grinding.

Chana dal / chick peas gram can also be used. But split peas gives good taste.
