  • Daal Maash : 1/2 cup
  • Onion : 1, small
  • Dried Whole Red Chilies : 6
  • Garlic : 4 cloves
  • Cumin Seed : 1 teaspoon
  • National Salt : 1/2 teaspoon
  • Yogurt : 1/2 kg
  • Tamarind Sauce : 1/2 cup
  • Oil For frying
  • National Chat Masala : As required


Soak the two daals for an hour.

Drain and mix with cumin seed, onion, garlic, whole red chilies, salt and 1 cup of fresh water.

Grind the whole lot to a thick paste.

Heat the oil in a wok and drop spoonfuls of the paste in the hot oil.

Fry until the puffs rise and turn a golden brown color.

Remove the puffs from oil and drop them into a bowl of water to soak for 10 minutes.

Gently squeeze the puffs to remove excess water and place in a serving dish.

Beat the yogurt and pour over the puffs, drizzle tamarind sauce on top, sprinkle with chat masala and serve.
