To make the tamarind chutney, boil and shimmer all the ingredients together till the chutney thickens. For making the sweet curd, mix all the ingredients together and keep it aside. To make the pakori mix, take soaked moong dal, cumin, ginger, garlic, salt chilli powder and turmeric together and grind into a fine puree. Take no or very less water while making the puree. In heated oil, scoop out small portions of the mixture and fry. Place the pakoras on a plate and drizzle sweet curd on top, pour tamarind chutney, add a spoon of mint chutney. Sprinkle chaat masala, garnish with pomegranate and coriander leaves and serve immediately.
