Quite often I hear from my colleagues and friends that their kids hesitate to eat dal (lentils). Though, I know lot of parents who themselves do not like to eat dal……say it’s boring. So, let’s add excitement to dal…..you must have heard about cheese balls or meat balls but ITBawarchi presents you Dal balls. Preparation:
Cook mix dal tadka/masala using little water (just enough to cook). In case it’s too moist to roll balls, fry it to reduce the water content. Cool it and add cheddar cheese, powdered black pepper, garlic powder. In case you do not like cheese, panner can also be added. Mix and knead well. While rolling out, fill it with half teaspoon of frozen white butter and roll it. Butter does three things; adds taste, moisture and excitement J
One at a time, dust dal ball with rice flour (dry), then give it an egg bath. Now, coat it with rice flour nicely and give an egg bath again. Then coat it with crushed cornflakes generously, keep aside. (In case you do not eat egg, then use corn flour and water mixture). Prepare all the balls in similar manner. Let them rest in the refrigerator for half an hour. Fry them on slow heat till they turn golden, but do not overcook.
Serve dal balls with homemade sweet chilli sauce or the one you like. Also, you can serve them with your choice of gravy/sauce…….get going, get creative…….for the love of cooking.
