Ingredients soaked Moongdal - 200g soaked channa dal - 100g corn flour - 2 tbsp curd - 2 spoon cumin seeds - 2 spoons chopped small onions - 1 cup red chilli - 1. If you want more spice add more garam masala - 1 spoon curry leaves, corriander leaves to garnish salt to taste Oil to fry. I used rice bran oil
Grind the soaked moongdal coarsely, add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Heat the oil in pan and place the dal balls in oil. Allow to get cooked. Serve Hot. Due to addition of corn flour, it wont be oily, but also be crispy. When I try vada with rice bran oil i have noticed that the crispiness remains for a longer hour.
“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.” ― Laurie Colwin
