A combination of spices, ginger and green chillies is worked into the batter to give the Yellow Moong and Urad Dal PakodaYellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakodas an appetizing flavour. Serve with Coconut Chutney on a rainy day and watch them being wiped off the plate within minutes!

Make sure you soak the dals for the required time, as mentioned in the recipe. Also make sure you patiently fry the pakodas till golden brown, or they might have a slightly raw flavour.

Notes on Pakora

  1. Pakora or Pakodas are fondly called Bajjias (Bhajias) and are generally deep friend Indian snacks made using besan. Besan is mixed with Indian spices and herbs to get different flavors and taste. Sometimes, even rice flour or hot oil is added to the batter to increase the crispiness of pakoda.

    Come monsoon and our hearts start yearning for something spicy and crunchy to munch on, that’s when pakodas come into the picture. The ever popular combination of piping hot pakoda and cutting chai is a famous street food of Mumbai. Even those who are very health-conscious cannot resist munching on just a pakoda or two with their evening chaai! Indeed, savoury snacks like pakore are as much a part of our lifestyle as mithai is a part of our culture.

Method for Yellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakora

  1. To begin making the Yellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakora recipe, combine yellow moong dal and urad dal in a deep bowl.
  2. Rinse the yellow moong dal and urad dal under running water or in a bowl full of water.
  3. Drain well.
  4. Transfer the dals into a deep bowl and pour enough water to submerge them.
  5. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 3 hours.
  6. Meanwhile, in a mortar pestle, take around ¼ tsp of cumin seeds and coarsely crush them. Keep aside.
  7. Also, take around 5 to 6 whole black pepper and coarsely crush them. Keep aside.
  8. The moong dal and urad dal will look like this after soaking for 3 hours.
  9. Drain well with the help of a strainer.
  10. Add around ½ cup of water to it.
  11. Blend in a mixer to form a coarse thick vada batter.
  12. Add the chopped ginger. You can even toss in some finely chopped onions or capsicum to give a nice bite to the Yellow moong and urad dal vada.
  13. Also, add the chopped green chillies. If you are in haste or do not enjoy the mouth feel of chopped ginger and chillies then make use of ginger-green chilli paste.
  14. Add the coarsely crushed cumin seeds.
  15. Add the coarsely crushed black pepper.
  16. Add the curry leaves. The kadi patta turns crispy on frying, giving a nice texture to the fried yellow moong and urad dal vada.
  17. Furthermore, add the coriander.
  18. Add the asafoetida. Even a pinch of hing has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties which help alleviate digestion problems like upset stomach, intestinal gas and flatulence.
  19. Add the salt.
  20. Add 2 tbsp of besan so as to make the batter of perfect dropping consistency.
  21. Mix well and your Yellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakoda mixture is ready.
  22. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan. You can test the same by adding in a small spoonful of the vada mixture in the oil; if it comes at the top surface of the oil immediately, then it means that the oil is hot enough.
  23. Once the oil is hot, drop spoonful of the mixture using your fingers. Be careful while doing this as the oil might splutter. Try frying only 1 pakoda to begin with. If it disintegrates then add 1 more tbsp of besan.
  24. Deep-fry a few pakodas at a time on a medium flame till they are evenly cooked till golden brown in colour. It is very important to fry the pakodas in batches. If you overcrowd the pan, the temperature of oil will change drastically and result in uneven cooking.
  25. Drain the Yellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakoda on an absorbent paper.
  26. Serve immediately with coconut chutney. Serve the Yellow Moong and Urad Dal Pakoda with Coconut Chutney and Green Chutney as an evening tea time snack, for a weekend breakfast or as an appetizer for parties.
