Instead of using besan, this unusual bhajiya is made with a mixture of soaked and ground chana dal flavoured with crunchy onions, pungent garlic, fiery green chillies, peppy ginger and aromatic coriander leaves.
The batter is reinforced with a little bit of rice flour which makes it firmer and improves the colour and crispness. The Chana Dal Bhajiyas are super crispy and must be enjoyed immediately after preparation.
