These Kebabs is one such dish which my mom made for me. I have earlier posted Black Chane ke Kebabs and this time she treated to me Chana Dal ke Kebabs.

I must say I loved these as much as I love the other one. All they need really need is overnight soaking of dal.

If you think the batter is slightly loose, then add 1 Tbsp corn flour or gram flour (besan) to adjust consistency.

You can semi-fry the kebabs lightly and keep aside. When ready to serve then re-fry them till they are golden brown and serve hot.
