BM # 12 Day 2
Born and brought up in Delhi I have always been fond of street food.Gul-gule'....doe’snt the name sound interesting?well...these are nothing but Moong Daal Pakoras or fritters.These are an absolute favorite with the Delhites and are sold in almost every nook and corner.Now what’s the big deal about moong daal pakoras?...yes ,you got to taste these to know what I am talking about.These have a very mild taste ,but the flavor of asofetadia is dominant,these are topped with grated radish,..the green leaves of radish are finely chopped and mixed in.To make them hot and spicy a green tangy chutney is drizzled on top and a spicy chaat masala is sprinkled to finish off!! Now ain’t it mouth watering?...These are also called Ram Ladoos.
Here is the recipe....
1cup................ moong daal
Salt to taste
A big pinch asofetadia
Pinch baking powder
Soak moong daal for 5-6 hours.
Grind to a paste.
Add salt ,hing and baking powder.
Fry the pakoras.
2 cups .............shredded radish
¼ cup.............. shredded radish leaves
4-6.................... green chillies
A small bunch coriander leaves
Few mint leaves
¼ cup.............. light tamarind juice
Salt to taste
Mix all ingredients and blend .
The chutney should be runny / watery.
Place the pakoras in a plate.
Sprinkle the radish mixed with greens.
Drizzle the chutney.
Sprinkle chaat masala.
Each pakora is relished with this fresh radish salad and chutney ,but eat these right away ,else they get soggy.
