  • Rice flour /  चावल का आटा / அரிசி மாவு  – 1 ¼ tbsp
  • Cooking oil/vegetable oil / खाना पकाने का तेल / சமையல் எண்ணெய்– for deep frying
  1. Soak the chana dal/bengal gram in the required water for 3- 5 hours ( drain if there is any excess water present after soaking).
  2. Drain the excess water (if it is present) in the soaked dal and grind to a coarse paste with the red chillies. Bengal gram coarse paste is ready.
  3. Add the onions, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, saunf (fennel seeds), garlic cloves, rice flour, salt (required), ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves and curry leaves to it. Mix it well.
  4. Make balls with the mixture and flatten it to a round shape vada using hands (if you feel the mixture is sticking to your hands while flattening it to round, then dip the hands in a bowl of water, dry and grease your hands with little cooking oil. If it is not comfortable to flatten it directly on hands, use a greased plastic sheet/plantain leaf and then, slip it gently into the cooking oil).
  5. Deep fry the flattened vada in the cooking oil until it turns golden brown in a kadai at medium flame. Turn off the flame.
