Here is what you need to do to make it at home. Soak chana dal lentils in water for 2 hours. Then drain the water and coarsely grind them into a dry crumbly paste. No need to add water. Take it off onto a bowl. Then in the same blender jar add grated coconut, green chillies, ginger paste, asafoetida (skip this one if you have gluten allergy), salt and turmeric powder. Blitz to make a dry paste similar to the lentils mixture. Transfer it to the bowl, add chopped cilantro and mix it all together. Then, shape into elongated balls by holding a palm full of this lentils mixture and rolling in the palm. You will just need one palm to do this. Place them in a greased steamer tray/dhokla tray. I used an Idli Cooker for this recipe. Steam these lentil balls for 10-12 minutes. Serve them warm along with some coconut chutney, ketchup or even green chutney. I enjoyed it as is though!
