Mixed Lentil Fritters
My mother and mother-in-law went back so this past week was very busy. After coming back from the airport, the house was quiet and we were not in a mood to cook. Plus, the fridge was kind of empty and it's cold outside.
I will start cooking soon, actually I have to plan for Thanksgiving. But for now, I am posting this mixed lentil fritters that my mom made on a cold day as a side for lunch and it was delicious. It was light filled with cilantro flavor, had a chilli kick that hits at the base of the throat and went well with kichuri :)
1/2 cup Chola dal
1/2 cup Masoor Dal
1/2 cup Mong Dal
2 green chillies - sliced thinly
1/2 tspoon ginger - grated
1/4 cup cilantro sliced
1/2 tspoon red chilli powder
salt to taste
2 tbspoon oil
Soak all lentils for 30 minutes and then grind it with the spices to a smooth paste. Add the cilantro and green chillies.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the fritters till they are golden brown, turn it around and cook the other side.
Serve it warm as side or with some chutney.
These plate of lentil fritters are going to Suganya at Tasty Palettes who is hosting Vegan Ventures Round 2 and for My Legume Love Affair Fifth Helping being hosted by Briciole.
