Amaranthus And Mixed Lentil Fritters

An authentic traditional recipe from my maternal home in Hyderabad City. This one has always been my favourite since childhood just because my father loved them too. Back then, i never realized it's nutritive value but now as a mother, i understand it perfectly well. These had been my father's favourite snack and i used to make them for him whenever i visited him on my vacation. I lost him a few months back and realized the bitter fact that there is no replacement whatsoever of our beloved parents who have gone far away from us, i always find him near me, guiding and blessing his little princess and today i dedicate this to my lovely one and only true friend - My Abbajaan. I love you so much. These fritters are healthy and with the wholesome goodness of mixed lentils making it protien rich too. There is no need to add any soda to the batter. Does not soak up oil and hence are absolutely heart friendly. Melt in mouth and gorgeous looking bhajiyas are a treat to your tastebuds. Happy Frying!
