  • Soak Pesalu/green gram dal, rice for 4 hours.

  • Grind it to a thick batter .

  • Add ginger paste, green chilli paste, salt, onions to the batter.

  • Heat enough oil for deep fring in a deep frying vessel. It should be piping hot, reduce the flame to  medium and use ur fingers to drop the batter in the oil so as to form small fritters. Deep fry till they turn golden brown. Use a laddle to keep turning the fritters so that it cooks on all sides.

  • Once they turn golden brown remove them on to paper napkeen to absorb extra oil.

  • Serve as a evening snack with tea.

Method 2:
