( If you do not get enough sun in your part of the world, you can stll make them.

I am proud to say that amongst us cousins in my generation, I am the only one who has treaded this path .... and successfully too. :-)
Urad / Moong dal, grated ginger, a pinch of salt, a little cooking oil, flat plates .... and of course a place where you get ample sunlight.
How to :
Wash the dal and soak it overnight. Grind it into a paste with very little water.
Add the grated ginger and salt to it and mix very well.
A variety of spices like cumin / black pepper / fresh coriander leaves etc can also be added to the basic dal mixture. This way you can get a variety of different flavoured Boris / Bodi / vadis.
Apply cooking oil on a flat plate.
Here are a couple of photographs of the bodis that I made from Masoor dal / Mushurir dal.

I'm sure Thamma would approve. :-)

They can be fried in a little oil and had on the side with rice and dal. Or they can be used to make some simple dishes.
Give these a try and enjoy your very own home made boris.
And if you do not have enough sun in your part of the world, worry not.
