A classic snack that is commonly served with tea or coffee.


  • Urad dhal – 1 cup

  • Green chilli – 2

  • Fresh ginger – a small piece

  • Fresh coriander leaves – few

  • Curry leaves – few

  • Coconut cut into tiny pieces – 2 tablespoons

  • Black Pepper – 1 teaspoon

  • Jeeragam (Cumin) – 1/2 teaspoon

  • Salt – half teaspoon or as per taste

  • Oil – for deep frying


  • Soak urad dhal in water for two to three hours.
  • Wash well and grind it to a soft paste using very little water. If you take little dough and put it in water, it should float on top of the water. This is the right consistency.
  • Chop ginger, chillies, coriander leaves and curry leaves and add it to the dough. Add pepper, jeera, coconut pieces and salt also. Mix everything well.
  • Heat oil in a kadai. Take a lemon size dough and shape it like a ball. Drop gently in the hot oil and deep fry till it becomes golden brown. Make sure the oil is in medium heat and not to be smoking hot.
  • Serve with plain coconut chutney.
