Wash dholl in
running water. Allow to soak in water for at least 3 - 4 hours
thoroughly by placing in a sieve and allowing to drain for a few
minutes. Put in a blender and blend to a combination of fine and
not so fine consistency. (Alternatively buy the dholl in grinded
form (not too fine and not too coarse) and soak before use).
There must be enough fines to bind the chilli cake together.
Add all the other
ingredients to the ground dholl and mix well together. Add a
little bit of water if necessary.

over hot to medium heat. Shape mixture into small balls and deep
fry in batches until golden brown. Make sure that the whole
chilli cake is cooked. Adjust heat if necessary to ensure
Drain and place
over several layers of kitchen absorbent paper to absorb the
extra oil. Serve hot with fresh bread or eat as a snack.
