Published August 20, 2014 by Bingo's Mom


Kadalai Paruppu / Bengal Gram – 1 cup

Onion – 1

Red chilly – 3

Ginger – 1 inch piece

Saunf / Sombu – 1 tsp

Pudhina Leaves (Chopped) – 2 tbs

Coriander Leaves (Chopped) – 3 tbs

Curry Leaves – 2 strings

Salt – to taste

Oil – for Deep Frying


Soak Bengal gram in enough water for 2 hours.

Chop onion. Take 3 tbs of soaked dhal separately and keep it aside. Grind remaining Dhal along with red chilly and ginger without adding water into a coarse mixture. You may add very little water if the mixture is too tight.

In a bowl add dhal mixture, soaked dhal, onion, Fennel Seed, pudhina, coriander, Curry leaves and salt. Mix well.

Heat oil in a pan. Take a lemon size ball from the mixture. Flatten with your finger / in your palm. Once the oil is hot enough reduce the flame and place the vadas carefully. Cook both the side in medium heat till it becomes golden brown in colour. Remove from pan and serve hot.
