How to Make Deep Fried Lentil Balls

  • Soak the lentils with fenugreek overnight.
  • Grind the soaked ingredients along with ginger-garlic paste, dried fenugreek leaves, dried mint, onion, salt, and water to a smooth paste.

  • Carefully add small amounts of the lentil balls to the hot oil and deep-fry until golden brown on all sides.
  • Remove using a slotted spoon and spread on a tissue as this enables absorption of extra oil.
