Daler Bora (Spicy Lentil Fritters)

Daler Bora or Masala vada means spicy lentils fritters is always my favorite rainy day snacks. Sometimes mom used to prepare when there is nothing as side dish for daal and rice. I prepared at home some spicy snack with hot tea as evening snack and everybody liked it a lot and it is very easy to prepare too.

Ingredients :

Chanar dal - 1 cup
Matar dal/Split peas - 1 cup
Onion - 2, finely chopped
Green chilli - 4-5, finely chopped
Ginger paste - 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Roasted cumin-coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1/4 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - 1 cup
Oil to fry

Method :

Soak the dal for atleast 4-5 hrs or overnight.

After drain the extra water lentils and then make a smooth paste.

Mix finely chopped onion, green chilli, ginger paste, all dry powder, sugar, baking soda and salt, coarsely mix all of them to a thicker consistency. Keep aside for 15 mins. 

Heat oil in deep frying pan or kadhai. Use a spoon to release small amount of prepared lentil mix on the hot oil. Mind the temperature of oil. It should not be very hot or less. Fry till golden brown.
Serve with sauce as starter or with rice and dal as a great side dish.
