Soya Chunks Pakodas

A packet of soya chunks was sitting in my pantry since quite a long, i dont want to make them either as anything with rice or as masala with soya chunks...Finally i wanted to make something with soya chunks for our evening snacks as cutlets, my H was asking something as deep fried snacks that the reason i went for making pakodas with those soya chunks..This pakodas goes for soaked and grounded channadal and grounded soya chunks with usual spices..This pakodas tastes fabulous for a rainy evening snacks with a cup of hot tea..We loved it, the addition of soya chunks in this pakodas changes the taste of usual pakodas..

Prawn Pakodas

2cups Channa dal (soaked for two hours)
1cup Soya chunks
2nos Onions (chopped finely)
2nos Green chillies (chopped finely)
1tsp Ginger (grated)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/2tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few Curry leaves
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil for greasing

Drain the excess of the water from the channadal and grind the dal coarsely,now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger pieces, crushed garlic,curry leaves, coriander leaves, crushed fennel seeds with enough salt to the grounded batter, meawhile cook the soya chunks in water and salt, once they double their volume, drain the water and squeeze out the excess water, grind the cooked soya chunks as a coarse paste and add this grounded soyachunks to the channadal mixture and mix everything well.

Heat the oil for deepfrying..make small balls from this batter..drop gently the soya chunks pakodas to the hot oil and fry until they turns golden brown..
