Masal Vada

Its actually raining outside and i thought of making this crispy masal vada as a evening snack to enjoy the rain.

5 cups Chana dal (soaked)
1 Yellow onion (chopped)
8 small green chilli (chopped)
8 Curry leaves (chopped)
1 tbsp Ginger (chopped)
1/2tsp Asafoetida
How to:
  • Soak the chana dal for 2 hrs, drain'em and keep it aside.
  • Take out 2tbsp of chana dal and coarse grind the remaining chana dal with ginger, asafoetida and salt.
  • Now mix onions, curry leaves and green chillies with the ground chana dal mixture. (If you don't like having green chillies in your mouth when biting, you can grind'em along with chana dal)
  • Also add the 'taken out' chana dal and mix well. This way, the whole chana dal gives nice crunchiness after fried.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan, take small lime size mixture and make round patties.
  • Now, slide'em in hot oil and deep fry'em. (Make sure you pour enough oil for the vada to fry on both sides equally)
  • Remove, when the vada starts browning.
Serve hot with coconut chutney.

What could be better than rain, a cup of coffee and hot vada?
