Today I was in a mood to eat something tasty and spicy so I soaked 1 cup of channa dal and made Dal Vada/ Masala Vada and it turned out delicious, its easy to make and healthy evening snack.
You need following ingredients to make Dal vada
1 cup channa dal (soaked for 4-5 hrs)
3-4 green chillies
2 pinch of hing
2 sticks of roughly chopped curry leaves
2 tsp roughly chopped ginger
salt to taste
Soak channa dal for at least 4-5 hrs.Chop green chilly and curry leaves and keep it aside. In a blender grind channa dal and ginger you can add little water to make a thick coarse paste. Do not grind the channa dal to make it a smooth paste, if there is whole daal in it, its fine. It will taste good when you fry it.)
Remove the ground masala from mixer/blender and mix it with curry leaves, green chillies, salt and hing. Make small balls press it between your palms to make it flat.
Heat oil in a pan deep/ shallow fry on a medium heat.
Enjoy it with green chutney/tomato ketchup!!
