Categories: Vegetarian, Grains, Vegan
Yield: 30 servings
10 oz Couscous
6 Green chillies
1 1" piece of ginger
Salt; to taste
2 ts Vegetable oil
1 ts Mustard seeds
1/2 c Urad dahl
3 Dry red chillies
Curry leaves (2-3 sprigs)

You will be able to get mustard seeds, curry leaves and urad dahl in

spluttering and the urad dahl starts turning golden brown, add 3 1/2
cups of water and the urad dahl batter, mix well and close the pan.
When the water starts boiling, add salt. (The batter already added
will tend to form clusters- Don't worry - Can be fixed later) Add the

heat and let cool.
After the mixture has cooled, take a small portion of the mixture and
make into a patty and set aside. (You can use some water and/or oil
to make the patties if the batter is too sticky) The amounts
