GARELU as some one great said vinte bharatam vinali tinte neti garelu tinali . That meant if one has to listen to an epic it should be Mahabharata and if one has to eat garelu made of ghee. Now adays we rarely find people crave for food to that extent but since we have certain traditions which make us cook all the traditional food . We make some varities of food during festivals and garelu is definitely one of them .


Urad dal - 4 cups
Salt - 1 tsp
Oil - frying


Soak four cups of urad dal in enough quantity of water for about 6 - 7 hours . Prefarably soak it early in the morning so that it can be made in the last after cooking all the items. Drain it .

Grind the urad dal into fine batter adding water little by little in small quantities.

Take small quantity of water in a vessel . Heat oil for frying , once it is hot enough , dip ur hand in water and take a small amount of batter and roll it as a ball spread it on your fingers in the form of a gare and leave it in hot oil . Let it fry till red . Repeat the process till the batter is all done. Can be served with allam chutney .
