In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients to make a soft dough. If necessary, sprinkle little water. But remember the dal and poha will already contain a bit of water.
Heat oil for deep-frying in a kadhai. Use your fingers to break off small pieces of the dal dough and fry them until golden brown. Serve the pakoras hot with green chutney, tamarind chutney or ketchup.
