  3. Grind Green Chilly, Ginger, Shallots/small onions. Mix it with Dal mixture. Stir it well.
  4. Add chopped onions and a pinch of Asafetida to it. Mix well.
  5. Make small balls with the mixture and then press it with your palm to get Vada shape. Maintain round shape.
  6. Heat a pan and pour oil. Reduce the flame to medium when oil turns hot(This will stop it from breaking).
  7. Fry both sides till it turns golden brown in color.
  8. Serve hot and with a cup of Tea(Perfect combo).

Tips :

  1. Make sure you drain water as much as possible from Dal.
  2. Make sure Oil is hot enough before adding the Vada also make sure to keep it medium flame once oil is very hot as this will help to get a perfect crispy Vada without burning.
  3. If salt or spices is less, it can be added at the time of mixing grinded ingredients.
