Masala Vada

Friday, May 07, 2010
I love my mom's masala vadas. I was missing her so much today.And also with  Mother s day this weekend, i thought i'll make something and dedicate it to here:). Well i was a bit worried about the outcome.. but they turned out just fine :).So here you go..

You will need :

Channa dal - 3 cups soaked in water for about 3-4 hrs
Onions - 2 large ones finely chopped
Green Chillies - 6-7 finely chopped
Ginger - 1 inch peice
Curry Leaves
Dried red chillies - 6-7
Oil for deep frying
Patience ;)

This is how you do it :

1. Grind together dried red chillies ginger and channa dal coarsly without adding any water.(dont grind it too smooth :))
2. Take it in a separate bowl and add the onions, chillies, curry leaves, cilantro, salt and mix well.
3. Heat oil in a kadai.
4. Now wet your hands with water and take small balls of the mixture, flatten them and put them in the oil.
    ( Be careful with the hot oil.I ve had very bad incidents :) )
5. Fry them on both sides till golden brown.

This is how they look :)

How about having them with a cup of hot tea or coffee ??
