Blend half the Chana dal roughly, not so fine. Set aside.
Blend the other half of the Chana dal with the onions, garlic and ginger paste. Blend finer than the first half but not too fine!
Add in the rest of the mixture and mix well. Do NOT be tempted to add any water.
Form into a ball then press with both palms to shape like a small flying saucer and set aside.
