How to make Bhalla Papdi Chaat?
Wash the Skinned Urad dal and soak it in water for 2 hours. Remove the water from the lentils and grind it with some heeng. Make a thick paste. Add 1/4th teaspoon salt to the paste and mix it well.

Heat some oil in a pan. Take the Urad dal batter prepared in above steps and make small pockets out of it. Stuff the raisins and cashew nuts in between them and then seat them. Press it a little using your finger and then deep fry it. You can fry 4-5 Bhalla together in a pan. Take them out of the oil when they are golden brown. Prepare all the Bhalla by this method.
