How to make Chana Dal Aloo Cutlet Recipe - Gram Dal Potato Cutlet Recipe
To begin making the Chana Dal Aloo Cutlet recipe, first wash the chana dal and soak in water for 1 hour or more.
Heat a pressure cooker and add the chana dal and water, cook for 2 to 3 whistles.
Once done, strain the water from the chana dal and make a dry fine paste using a mixer grinder.
Heat a teaspoon of oil and temper with cumin seeds, asafoetida and saute it for about 10 seconds.
Add ginger, coconut, red chilli powder, cardamom powder. Saute for a few seconds.
Add the chana dal paste, boiled mashed potatoes, besan, coriander leaves, mint leaves and chaat masala. Now stir fry the dal mixture for about 2 to 3 minutes on medium to low flame until it thickens.
Once it thickens, turn off the heat.
Next, make flat thick medium balls and refrigerate the Chana Dal Aloo Cutlet for about 15 minutes.
Heat a frying pan with oil and fry the Chana Dal Aloo Cutlet from both side for 5 minutes each or till they turn golden brown in colour. Make sure you fry on low to medium heat to get a perfect crispness.
Once done, take the Chana Dal Aloo Cutlet out on a kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil. Serve hot.
