  • Wash and soak the channa daal in excess water for 2 hour 
  • wash and finely chop the dill/sabbasgi leaves. also finely chop the onions
  • garlic, ginger, green chillies should be minced or grind into paste
  • Take the soaked channa daal in blender and pulse them for few seconds to grind coarsely with as little water as possible. Take care not to grind it into paste
  • Now in another bowl add ginger-garlic-green chilly paste, red chilli powder, onions and salt. Give it a proper mix and add in all the remaining ingredients (i,e sabbasgi/dill and coarsely ground channa daal) 

  • Mix everything evenly preferably by hand. Then make ball/dumplings of equal size *

  • Drop them in hot oil, take out on paper tissue to drain the excess oil
  • Serve hot with tea

  • If the water content is more in the mixture, the ball/dumplings may either crack or break while making. In that case add some besan or corn flour , mix and then make the dumplings
