Heat oil for deep frying.

Make a coarse paste out of the soaked dal and tip this in a bowl.

Add all ingrediants except oil and flours in a blender and roughly crush it.Put this in the Ground dal and mix well.

Add rice flour and besan and mix well.Make small koftas out of it and fry them in medium heat oil.
