Mysoor lentil fritters

2 cups of split mysoor or masoor dal or yellow/orange lentil
1/2 cup cleaned shrimp chopped 
2 tbsp onion sliced finely
1 tbsp curry leaves chopped
1 to 1/2 tsp chillie flakes to preference
1/2 tsp salt
oil 2" high to fry

*Shrimp can be omitted if you want to make it vegetarian.

Wash and soak the lentils for about an hour or more. Grind the dal coarsely without any water, don't grind well because it would be hard to form the shape to fry. 
Add salt, chillie flakes, onion, curry leaves and shrimp to the ground dal and mix.  Make ball shapes or use a tbsp full of mixture to drop into the hot oil; it is optional to make a donut shape hole in the middle for these fritters.
Deep fry in hot oil (about 360F), the fritters should not brown too fast so keep the heat in medium high heat and fry until the fritters are golden brown.  Serve hot on its own or with hot sauce.  These savoury fritters would be perfect for brunch, snack or as a savoury treat for tea time.
