Picture of Making the Dough

Put the soaked Dals in a food processor, add some cut pieces of fresh ginger and mix to a fine paste. Depending on the size of the food processor you may need to split it into two or three batches (try not to add any water unless absolutely necessary to mix).

Once done - put the fine paste in a large bowl, add a very small amount of baking soda (less than 1/8 tea spoon) and whip with hand until fluffy.

Step 4: Cook

The taste is very bland as it is just legume dough. You can try it with just the chutney as well. Thanks for the bowl measure I will update the image. Thanks

The bowl reference could use a better measurement. Or at least a soda can next to it for size reference. And I don't know that I would want to top it with all the yogurt and such. Maybe dip them. But I love tamarind so I'm interested. How do they taste when just fried? Before the salt water?
