Crispy Masala Vada Anyone?

Masala Vada is a popular and a common snack in South India.  It can be served as an accompaniment for sambar rice or even as a starter. Generally, we make it during festivals. Masala Vada has many variations, and this is one of them. Thanks Cookingandme for posting this yummy recipe.

Ingredients

Channa Dal – 1 Cup

Chopped Small Onions – 1 Cup

Finely Chopped Green Chillies – 1 To 3

Grated Ginger – 1″ Piece

Minced Garlic – 2 Pods

Garam Masala Powder – 1/2 – 1 Teaspoon

Cumin Seeds – 1/2 Teaspoon

Curry Leaves – 2 Sprigs

Salt

Oil

Preparation

1. Soak Channa Dal in water for 2 hours. Drain the water and grind the Channa Dal with rest of the ingredients. If you want, you can keep 2 teaspoons of Channa Dal aside and then add them to the mixture just before shaping them so that when you bite the Masala Vada, you can get a bite of the dal.

2. Meantime, heat oil in medium fire to deep fry the Masala Vadas.

3. If necessary, add just few drops of water. Do not add more water. Make lemon sized balls and then flatten it using your palms and then flip it in the oil. Deep fry it until the vada turns golden brown.

Now, the Masala Vada is ready!

Serve. Hotel Style Coconut ChutneyTil Chutney, Idly and Pongal
