How to Prepare Curry for Moong Dal Karara

Make a paste of green chill, ginger and curd to form a curd batter. Pour 500 gms water into the batter (2 1/2 cup). We will prepare curry with this batter.

Heat oil in a pan on a low flame. Put heeng, cumin seeds into the oil and let the splutter.  Now add turmeric powder and coriander powder to it. Stir well with the spoon and put the remaining pakora mixture into it along with 2 table spoon water. Cook till the water reduces completely in the pan and dries off.
