Moong Dal Ladoo Chaat

Hi Friends ....
Moong dal ladoo is the street food of Delhi.....I always miss them in Bangalore but now we prepare them at home...
Homemade food is always healthy and tasty :-) So do give it a try, I am sure everybody will like this at your place ...

1 cup yellow moong dal
1" grated ginger

Few fresh coriander leaves (chopped)
1 tsp asafeotida(hing)
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp amchoor powder
salt acc. to taste
Oil for frying
For garnishing:
Grated radish

Pudina Chutney

Tamarind Chutney
Black Salt
Chaat masala


  1. Wash and soak the dal for 5-6 hrs or overnight.
  2. Drain complete water of the dal, and grind it into a rough paste. 
  3. Beat ground dal in a bowl using whisker for 10-15 minutes till it becomes  light and frothy.
  4. To check:  just put one drop of batter in a glass of water, if  the batter comes up and float on the water immediately then its ready to use.
  5. Heat oil in a kadahi, using hands or a small spoon, form small balls of the paste and put them in oil one by one. 
  6. Fry them slowly on medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour. Drain them on an absorbent paper.
To assemble the ladoos:
Place them in serving bowl, garnish with grated radish, green chutney, tamarind chutney.
Sprinkle little bit of chaat masala and black salt on the top and serve.
