My husband and I do not watch any games. I never even watched cricket back in India. But when i saw this event, I remembered how my mom would make either bhajiyas, mangooris or samosas etc for us. My dad and brother loved cricket and this would spice up things even more. This recipe just takes 15 minutes and tastes wonderful. And what is better than fried food for the game??? This is off to Mansi for the event game night party at http://funnfud.blogspot.com/2008/01/announcing-event-game-night-party.html
For the fritters:
1 cup moong dhuli dal - split moong dal with skin
3-4 green chilies
2 tblsp green coriander
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 inch piece ginger
salt to taste.
Oil to deep fry.
Soak the dal for about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. Grind it in a mixer with all the above. Don't use too much water bcos the batter should be very thick. And do not grind it too fine. It should be a bit grainy. If you feel that the batter has become thin, just add 1 tblsp chick pea flour to thicken it. This is optional.
Heat oil. Put the wadas in the hot oil with a small spoon and deep fry on medium heat till golden bron. Serve hot with sauce or chutney of your choice.
