How to make the recipe
Wash and soak green gram for at least 4 to 6 hrs. If using pesara pappu just soak for one hour.
Drain the water and grind it to a smooth batter with salt and very little water, as little as 1 to 2 tbsps. The batter must be thick, thicker than the pesarratu consistency. Refer the pic, if the batter is runny, it will absorb oil.
Add chili, onions, cumin, leaves and adjust the salt. Mix well
Heat oil, reduce the flame to medium, wait for a min, take small portions of this batter, make balls and drop them in the oil. Be careful they tend to get burnt faster and the inner part remains uncooked, so do not drop in very hot oil.
Keep stirring and fry till golden and evenly fried.
Make small batches and fry till your entire batter finishes.
