Servings 4 people


  • 1 cup split skinless green gram or dhuli moong dal soaked and drained
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 2 tsp ginger chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves
  • 3 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • Pinch of asafoetida or hing
  • Pinch of baking soda
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying

For topping:

  • 1 cup sweetened yoghurt or as needed beaten smooth
  • 4-5 tbsp tamarind chutney or as needed
  • 4-5 tbsp green chutney or as needed
  • 2 tsp chaat masala
  • 4-5 tbsp sev


  • Blend together green gram, chopped onion, green chilli, ginger and 1 tbsp coriander leaves. Add water and make a coarse paste.
  • Add 1 tbsp coriander leaves, black pepper powder, baking soda, asafoetida, rice flour and salt. Mix well.
  • Add coriander seeds and mix again.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan on medium flame. Once the oil is hot, drop a spoonful of batter into the oil. Keep adding small portions of the batter but don’t overcrowd the pan. Fry until they turn golden on all sides. It may take 2-3 minutes. Take them out on an absorbent paper.
  • To assemble the chaat, take 4-5 pakodi in the serving bowl, drizzle yoghurt, tamarind chutney and green chutney. Sprinkle chopped onions, black pepper powder, chaat masala and sev. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
