Ghari: a crispy-crunchy evening snack


The conventional doughnut shaped urad dal fritters of South India takes  a twist in Kongani cuisine. Ghari, deep-fried crisp urad dal dough makes an awesome combination with black coffee during lazy evenings. Ghari is prepared from semi-ground urad dal mixed with limited spices. Konganis across the country prepare this snack on Durgashtami, the ninth day of Navratri.

2-3 green chillies chopped
3 sprigs of curry leaves
2 tsp crushed black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste


Blend the ingredients to a thick semi ground paste without using water
Heat oil in a pan
Add small morsels of urad dough to the boiled oil and deep-fry till the Ghari turns golden brown 
Remove the fried Ghari from the oil 
Garnish with fried curry leaves
Serve hot with black coffee
