 Ingredients List

  • 10 oz Couscous
  • 6 Green chillies
  • 1 1" piece of ginger
  • Salt; to taste
  • 2 ts Vegetable oil
  • 1 ts Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 c Urad dahl
  • 3 Dry red chillies
  • Curry leaves (2-3 sprigs)
  • 2 tb Coconut (optional)


Save about 2 tsp of urad dahl and soak the rest of the urad dahl in water
for about an hour. After an hour, grind the urad dahl, green chillies and
ginger to the consistency of pancake batter and keep aside. In a pan, heat
the 2 tsp veg oil and add the mustard seeds, 2 tsp urad dahl (that was
saved), the curry leaves and the red chillies (after cutting them into fine
pieces). When the mustard seeds start spluttering and the urad dahl starts
turning golden brown, add 3 1/2 cups of water and the urad dahl batter, mix
well and close the pan. When the water starts boiling, add salt. (The
batter already added will tend to form clusters- Don't worry - Can be fixed
later) Add the couscous and mix thoroughly (use a potato masher and get rid
of any clusters by mashing them well). After the mixture has solidified,
(This should not take more than 5-10 minutes) take the pan out of the heat
and let cool. After the mixture has cooled, take a small portion of the
mixture and make into a patty and set aside. (You can use some water and/or
oil to make the patties if the batter is too sticky) The amounts mentioned
in this recipe should yield about 30 patties. Serve with sphaghetti sauce
or any spicy chutney.
