Pakoda /bhajiya or fritters are among the most favourite Indian snacks.They are easy to make and so versatile .You can make bhajiya or pakoda with any vegetable of your choice or can make with just gramflour or refined flour .There is no fix recipe of making perfect bhajiya,very easily adjusted according to individual taste and availability. But yes off course the most popular are the potato bhajiyas!
I also love pakodas and often makes Lauki ke Pakoda , very crisp Yellow pumpkin fritters which is my own recipe, Baigan Pakoda which is my family favourite ,Gujarati style Stuffed Banana Fritters, Milagai Bajji are from Southern India are made often in my Kitchen along with other so many variety of fritters.
Moong Daal bhajiyas are very popular in Uttar Pradesh .There are so many variation of making yellow lentil fritters- Ram Ladoo is the most popular snack In Delhi and nearby areas is also made with Yellow lentil and this Moong Daal Bhajiya is also a easy and delicious fritter recipe.
The Recipe which I am posting today is a very crisp and delicious Aloo aur Moong daal pakodas which I had long back ,when I was going to Agra and There was a small bhajiya stall under a tamarind tree and along the side of the railway track . The pakodas sold by that bhajiya wala was so crisp and delicious that there was always a waiting line near his stall. He also served a very tangy and tasty green chutney with the fritters made with the tender leaves and fresh tamarind from that same tamarind tree . So I tried to recreate the same Moong daal and aloo pakoda recipe .The trick is too grind the daal coarsely and make a thick batter so when we dip the potato slices in the batter ,it coat the slices partially then only we get the texture of soft but crisp pakodas.
