1/2 cup Urad Flour
Warm to hot water
Oil for frying
Yogurt 1 - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar to taste about 4-5 tbsp
pinch of salt
Here is the Urad/Udad flour that you could find at the Indian/Pakistani Grocery store.
Measure about 1/2 a cup and dilute it with water to make a smooth paste.
It should not be very thin or very thick. Medium consistency as shown below in the picture.
Cover and leave it for atleast 30 minutes.
Now with a teaspoon, scoop the batter into hot oil.
The smaller the drops of batter, the better.They will fluff up twice the size if done right.
Once it starts to brown underneath, turn over and fry until golden brown.
With a slotted spoon, transfer them into a strainer.
Once these little goodies are fried and the excess oil is drained, transfer them into a bowl and soak them in water for about 1 minutes.
In the meanwhile, whip the yogurt with sugar and a pinch of salt. Use more or less sugar if needed.
Now drain the phulkees again in a strainer and remove all the excess water. You could squeeze them softly too as long as they dont break. Transfer them into the yogurt.
Mis mix until well coated. Sprinkle some chat masala and cumin powder. Cover and refrigerate atleast 20 minutes before serving.
Yum!! Go take a trip to the grocery store now!
