Masala Vada

Ingredients :
  1. Chana dal - 1 cup
  2. Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
  3. Chilly powder - 1 to 2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Dry curry leaves - 10 crushed
  6. Coriander leaves
  7. Onion - 1 thinly sliced

Method :
  • Soak Chana dal for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Please don't add water to the mixture while grinding so drain water from the soaked chana dal. Grind half of chana dal with ginger garlic paste,chilly pwder and salt finely into a paste. Make sure another half soaked chana dal is not grinded like a paste( Note : we should be able to see the whole chana dal)
  • Add Onion,crushed curry leaves and coriander leaves to the above grinded ingredients.

  • Add oil to pan and make lemon size ball from the grinded mixture and press it little.(I feel thinner one will be more crispy.)
  • Deep fry masala vada and place those on napkins to absorb extra oil.
  • Masala Vada is ready to have.
