Serves – 2
Preparation time – 10 mins
Waiting time – 30 mins
Cooking time – 25 mins
- All purpose flour – 1 1/2 cups
- Yogurt – 3/4 Cup
- Green Chillies (finely chopped) – to taste
- Onion (finely chopped) – 1 small
- Salt- to taste
- Ginger (grated) – 1 tsp
- Cumin Seeds – 1tsp
- Water – 1/4 cup
- Lemon (squeeze) – Half
- Cilantro – 2 Tbsp
- Oil – for deep frying
- Baking Soda – 1/4 tsp
In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except oil to form a tight batter ( depending on the consistancy of yogurt you may or may not need water)
Cover it up and rest the batter for atleast 30 mins in a warm place. (I prefer to rest it in a preheated oven(180 F) turning the oven off)
After the resting time remove the batter and heat up the oil for deep frying and keep mixing the batter with your hands or spoon to incorporate additional air into the batter.Add the batter into the hot oil in the form of dumplings (lime size balls or mini balls) and fry them till golden brown all over on a medium heat.
Serve hot with as is or any chutney. Enjoy!!!
