mangode ( green split lentil fritters )

Mangode are very popular snack in Northern parts of India ,its made up of green split lentils and yellow grams,they are very crisp and lip-smacking fritters .Perfect with tea/coffee ,can warm you up easily in this foggy freezing weather.My family really loved this crispies in this comforting cold month.These fritters are kinda simple to make with our regular ingredients and are very inviting .One of my friends made these during our gals potluck ,she spiced up our gathering with these yummy and irresistible munchies as a starter .Thanx a bunch to my friend Poonam for this lovely recipe,i made this quite a few times now but i am posting it late as i didnt had good pic of it,we always pounce upon the mangode as soon as i fry them and hence till now didnt had enough chance to plate it up !

ingredients :
1 cup green split lentils ( hare chilke wali moong dal )
2 tbsp yellow grams (chana dal)
1 tbsp corriander seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
2 tbsp finely chopped onions
2 tsps grated ginger
2-3 finely chopped green chillies ( add acc to your taste )
1 -2 tsps  red chilli pwd ( adjust acc to your taste )
salt to taste
handful of corriander leaves finely chopped
oil for deep frying
method :
Wash and soak the green split lentils and yellow gram together for 3-4 hrs .Strain the water and grind both the lentils together to a coarse form in to a grinder,if required add couple of spoons of water,the less water used the more crisp will be the fritters so try using less water.Add rest of the ingredients except oil and mix well.Heat oil in deep pan ,take a spoonful  of mixture and slide into the hot oil and fry on medium flame till dark in colour and crisp .Serve hot with ketchup .
