Chana Atta Kadi Recipe

Chana Atta Kadi


2 cups chana daal, soaked in water for 3-4 hours

2 chopped green chilies


1 tsp chili powder




For making Kadi:

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp fenugreek seeds

Curry leaves

3 cups wheat flour




Directions for making Chana Pakodi:

  • Drain all the water from the soaked chana daal and ensure it is almost dry.
  • Blend it after adding 1 green chili, salt and a pinch of asafetida. Water should be just enough to give the batter a semi-thick consistency.
  • Divide this thick paste into several portions and give them round shape.
  • Heat oil in a pan for frying these chana balls.
  • Fry them until they turn light golden in color.
  • Keep these pakodis aside for some time and then soak them in fresh water for around 5 minutes.
  • Take them out by squeezing out all the water.
