Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Wash and soak the urad dal for 6 hours. Wash, drain and grind the soaked urad dal into a smooth and thick batter with very little water. Add salt and mix very well. Heat oil in a wide vessel. Apply a little water on your fingers. Take lemon size balls of this batter, flatten them a little, make a hole in the middle and deep fry them in oil, till they turn golden brown. Remove from the oil and serve hot with sambar or chutney.
