Golden Lentil Balls with a Cheesy Interior

Wanted to make lentil fritters in a different way than the usual! Sneaked in a pinch of mozzarella cheeze in the center. Crunchy golden balls could be made ahead and deep fried just before serving.

Grind together:
a cup of soaked lentils - I used channa dal, and kept spoonfuls of dal aside before grinding
1" piece of peeled and chopped ginger
2-3 garlic cloves
2-3 cloves
1/2" cinnamon
3-4 green chili

and mix with:
1 small onion chopped
a handful of coriander leaves chopped
a tsp of chopped curry leaves
salt - to taste
rice flour - just enough to absorb the extra moisture and give the balls a crunchy exterior

Stuff in small bits of mozzarella cheese as shown below:

Deep fry to indulge in these golden beauties.
