    paul4's Note:

    This is an Indian recipe. My Mother in law got it from an Indian friend. They can be kept in the fridge and warmed up in the microwave later and I think my mother in law would freeze them but I've never tried it.

      Mmmm these are good, I used mango chutney to dip (sweet tooth) and also to deal with the heat from the chilli's. I found they dried out a bit if warmed in the micro wave, but despite being deep fried did not seem greasy at all.

      These tasted good, but didn't have much holding power even with an egg. I looked up other recipes, and they seem to be based on a batter made with gram or chick pea flour, so that is what I used to make this recipe work for me. Maybe the instructions for the lentil preparation could do with some expansion.
