Mangode- Green Split Lentil Fritters


Mangode! Remind me of the evenings that I spend in Indore with family, snacking on the terrace and talking random stuff with Jayant Da, Charit & his parents. The more you eat these mangodas the more random the conversation…don’t ask me the link between the two. Just goes in our family 😉

We made them at home yesterday and they came out so well! Some days are just perfect 🙂 Thanks for the recipe Renu Kaki, undoubtedly you are one of the best cooks in the family!

This one is very simple and quick to make, a snack that will please everyone!

Here it goes-

2 bowls chilke wali moong daal (Split Green Gram)

1 bowl chana daal (Bengal Gram)

Half bowl urad daal (Split Black Grams)

Cumin Seeds- 1-2 tsp

Turmeric Powder

Corriander Seeds 1 Tbsp- slightly crushed- hammer in a sealed bag

Salt & Red Chilli as per taste

Chopped Corriander

Ginger Paste & finely chopped green chillies

Method –

Wash & soak the lentils for 4-5 hours. Strain the water after 5 hours.

Grind with very little water (lesser the water- more crisp the fritters) Keep it slightly coarse- not too fine, else mangode or the fritters will not be very crispy. Add cumin seeds, crushed coriander seeds (a bit) salt, ginger paste, green chillies,  red chilli powder, turmeric powder.

Once the batter is ready, heat oil in deep pan, take a spoonful  of mixture and slide into the hot oil. Fry on medium flame till dark in colour and crisp .Serve hot with Coriander Chutney and enjoy!
