These fritters have to be without a doubt one of the most consumed snacks during Ramadan.

These crunchy pistachio lentil fritters called Dali Bora is a healthy vegan recipe that makes a perfect meatless Ramadan recipe. It’s easy to make and vegan! It takes less than an hour to make and is packed full of delicious flavours.


  • 1.5 cups of red split lentils, make sure to soak them 2-3 hours before so they should expand in size
  • water (if needed to aid blending)
  • 5 green chillies
  • ⅓ of a bunch of coriander
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 – 1.5 tsp oil for frying
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • 50 g Natural Kernels
  • 3 spoons of Pure 100% Crunchy Pistachio Butter


  1. Chop 2 onions, Natural Kernels and a bunch of coriander.
  2. Slice green chillies in small pieces to make sure it distributes the heat (chilli) evenly.
  3. Drain the excess water from the lentils and blend in a blender/food processor till smooth.
  4. Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and add salt and pepper.
  5. When you’re ready to fry, heat a large pan/wok with oil. Using fresh oil results in crispy tasty Dali Bora.
  6. Prepare a colander with some kitchen towel to drain your Dali Bora on before you start.
  7. Carefully drop about 1 tsp of the Dali Bora mixture at a time into the oil and deep fry.
  8. Fry them over a medium heat so that the inside cooks through till they are a golden brown colour on the outside. Transfer the cooked Boras onto some kitchen paper once cooked.
