How to Make Musoor Dal’er Bora/Lentil Fritters #275

Indian cooking or Bengali cooking in specific doesn’t have to be so elaborate all the time! When you don’t have any vegetable at home, you can still manage to make a decent meal out of lentil and few onions. We always have rice, wheat flour, some variety of lentils and onions in our house.

This recipe came extremely handy at that time when the markets were fully closed for many days and it was impossible to get fresh vegetables, fish and meat every single day. Dal’er Bora is nothing but vegetarian/vegan fritters made out of lentils. This one in particular is made with Musoor dal/lentil.
