3. Mix turmeric powder, salt and baking powder.
4. Make lemon sized balls and flatten them a bit. Deep fry these and set them aside.
5. In a pan mix the yogurt and the besan. Blend together adding sufficient water. ( 2-3 cups)
6. Bring the kadhi to a boil and simmer it. Add salt and turmeric powder and a little sugar if you like.
7. When the kadhi is thicker, tip in the dal fritters and simmer for about 4-5 minutes.
