Soak the dal in water for 2 hours. Then remove the extra water and grind the dal little coarsely.

Prepare pakoris

Whisk the moong dal for 3 to 4 minutes constantly until puffy. Heat enough oil in a wok to deep fry the pakoris. When the oil is hot, make small round pakoris from the batter and drop them in the oil. Fry until they get golden brown in color and then drain them out. Similarly fry remaining pakoris as well.

Soak the pakoris in water

Take 3 cups of water in a bowl and mix 1 tsp salt to it. Drop fried pakoris to the water and keep them drenched for 15 to 20 minutes to make them soft and puffy.

Prepare Papdi

Knead the dough again until smooth and divide it into two parts. Take one part and roll into a round lump. Roll it out into thick parantha. After this, take a lid of bottle and make roundels with the cap at distance to make papri. After cutting the papdis, remove extra dough.

Papdis are little thick, so roll them out a little thinly. Make 4 to 6 pricks over the papdis on both the side. Make small dough balls from the remaining dough and roll out to make papdis. Prick these as well.

Fry the papdis

In medium hot oil, drop the papdis to fry. Keep the flame low-medium. When the papdis are fried from beneath, flip the side and continue frying until they get golden brown in color.

Prepare Chaat

Mix some salt and sugar into the curd. To serve chaat  papdi, take 3 to 4 moong dal pakoris and squeeze out excess water. Break 2 papdis as well. Pour 5 to 6 tsp curd, 1 tsp sweet chutney, 1/2 or 1 tsp green coriander chutney and sprinkle some red chili powder, chaat masaal, cumin powder, salt and pomegranate.
