How to make it

  • Wash and Soak the dal for 30 mins or so until it split .
  • Drain and grind with 3 tbsp of water
  • If required add another 2 tbsp of water for circulation and grind into smooth batter .
  • The lesser the water its better .
  • Add the rest of the ing. in and mix well .
  • Check the salt .
  • Shape into small balls and flatten abit .
  • Make a hole in the centre and ......
  • Deep fry .
  • ( or just scoop them into the oil and fry )
  • Although battered and deep-fried, the finished product should not be too oily if prepared correctly, since steam build-up within the vada pushes all oil away from within the vada.
  • It will be fluffy and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside .

    These sound great! The bites of coconut should be awesome in them.

    Looks good. I am going to pass it to my friend, too. She will love that it is made out of lentil or potato.
