1 cup hung curd

How to make Darbari Kebab
To make this yummy kebab recipe, drain the previously soaked green moong dal and keep aside.
Heat the 2 tablespoon ghee in a kadahi, and add the cumin.
When they splutter add the dal and the salt and saute over medium heat till tender but whole. Takes about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Grind the lentils in a food processor or a stone to a fine consistency without adding water. This becomes like a dough. Mix the salt, chilli powder, garam masala and garlic into the ground dal.
Add the yoghurt and make into a soft pliable dough.
Divide this into about 12 portions and shape them into round balls, and then flatten them.
Heat enough ghee in a heavy based frying pan to form a thin layer.
Fry over low heat, first on one side then the other, till crisp and brown.
Serve it hot with tomato-garlic sauce and coriander chutney.
