Ram Ladoo - moong dal pakode

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Saturday, April 21, 2018

Ram Ladoos, a delicious chaat made of moong dal pakora, topped with chutney's and grated radish. These were my last minute resort for today's alphabet 'R'. Originally i planned to make ragda pattice, but then since i didn't have time, i decided to pick an easy to make chat recipe. Ram Ladoos also knowns as gul-gule, a famous street food from delhi. My elder one and my hubby enjoyed it with the chutney and the radish garnish, where as my lil one was happy with just the fried pakode. It is a win-win for all. These make a great snack along with tea, a delicious option for parties too. 
3/4 cup moong dal
1/2 cup chana dal
1/2 an inch ginger
2 green chilies
1/2 tsp cumin
1 radish, grated
hing/asafoetida a pinch
chaat masala, as needed
lemon juice, as needed
salt to taste

Green chutney
1 bunch of fresh coriander
1 green chili
1 clove of garlic
salt to taste

  • Rinse and soak moong dal and chana dal in water for an hour or two. Drain and take the dal in a mixer, add green chilies, ginger,cumin and grind it to batter without adding water. 
  • Once done, remove it to a bowl, add salt and hing, using an electric whisk, whisk the batter fluffy, the yellow color batter, would turn pale white as you whisk, this way you are incorporating air into the batter, which will make the vada fluffy.
  • Heat oil in a pan for frying, pinch balls out of the batter and deep fry them until golden brown. Do not crowd the  batter, add 6-8 pieces to a batch. Once done, remove the fritters using a slotted spoon on to a kitchen towel.
  • Blend the ingredients for green chutney, with 1/4 cup of water. Remove it to a bowl. For serving, add 5-6 moong dal fritters to a bowl, add generous green chutney, you can also use sweet chutney if you like, add grated radish, sprinkle chaat masala, add a squeeze of lemon and serve immediately.
