Pinched Black Urad Dal Fritters

Do we need any reason to enjoy some deep fried beauties? definitely no. As i told earlier we are entering the summer here. Kids are having their hectic days with exams and late night studies,just two more weeks and they will be in summer vacation for 2 months. Yesterday, we had a super rainy day, our day itself started with a super heavy rain and later in the evening it was pouring like anything. Needless to say that we felt like having some hot deep fried fritters with a cup of coffee or tea. I have soaked some whole urad dal overnite for making some dal makhani but finally i ended them making this pinched fritters.

Actually my mom makes a bonda with split deskinned urad dal with whole black peppers and sliced coconut bites, for a change instead of making balls with the urad dal batter, i went for this pinched version. These crispies were quite addictive,goes awesome even as side dish. We couldnt stop ourself having this crispy fritters and everyone at home just enjoyed a lot.You can enjoy thoroughly this incredible fritters in many ways with the choice of your favourite chutneys or sauces.Sending to Kid's Delight- Evening snacks guest hosted by Vardhini,event by Srivalli..


2cups Soaked whole urad dal
1/2cup Coconut (sliced as small pieces)
1tbsp Crushed black peppers
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Grind the soaked whole urad dal with enough salt and water as bit coarse paste, add the coconut pieces, crushed black peppers and curry leaves.

Heat the oil for deep frying, once the oil gets hot,pinch the already prepared batter and drop gently to the hot oil, fry until the fritters turns golden brown.

Do fry in small batches and drain the excess of oil with a paper towel.

Enjoy for snacks with a cup of tea.
