Recipe
1
Wash and soak 200 grams of peas dal (yellow split peas) in water for 3-4 hours. Drain the water and grind the dal into a coarse paste without adding any water.
2
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground dal paste, 1 finely chopped onion, 2 finely chopped green chilies, 1 teaspoon grated ginger, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, and salt to taste. Mix well to form a thick batter.
3
Add 2 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves and 1 tablespoon of chopped mint leaves to the batter and mix well.
4
Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, drop spoonfuls of the batter into the oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
5
Fry the pakoras until they turn golden brown and crispy, turning them occasionally to ensure even cooking. This should take about 4-5 minutes.
6
Use a slotted spoon to remove the pakoras from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
7
Serve the matar dal pakoras hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
