Meethi Dahi Barey {Lentil Dumpling in Sweetened Yogurt}

This is something that is usually made in the month of Ramadan for Iftaar. Its a soft lentil dumpling that is fried and dunked in sweet yogurt.

Its super easy, and can be made ahead of time.

For this recipe you'll need:
1/2 cup of Yellow Lentil
a pinch of Baking Soda
a pinch of Salt

1 1/2 cup of Yogurt
5-6 tbsp of Sugar

Soak Lentil in water for 1 hour.
Than blend to make a paste.
Add baking soda and salt. Mix and leave for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile heat water with a bit of salt till simmering.

Mix yogurt and sugar together. Keep aside.

Pour this mixture in a heated oil with a spoon, so that they form disc shapes, dont make them very large, as they will swell up in the water. Fry till light golden. 

Than add them in hot water for 5 minutes. Take them out. Press out access water when cool handle. 

Add them to sweetened yogurt. 

Sprinkle with Chaat Masala and serve !
