  3. Salt – According to taste.
  4. Cumin – A pinch.
  5. Poppy seeds – A pinch.

Soak the split black gram or urad overnight.

Step 2

The next day grind it with 1 green chilly and to it add the given amounts of salt, cumin and mix it up.

Step 3

Heat oil in a wok and slowly drop the urad mixture making a ball-like shape out of it.

Step 4

Deep fry the balls and during frying splutter a little bit of poppy seeds onto them. Fry them till they are lightly browned.
