Serves 6

• big Onion (chopped finely)
• 1 cup Chana Dal (soaked in water for 3-4 hrs)
• 3-4 Curry Leaves (chopped finely)
• 2 Green Chilies (low spiced)
• Oil for deep frying
• Salt as per taste
• tbsp Grated Coconut (fresh/frozen)
• Pinch of Asafetida (Hing)
• tsp Red Chili Powder
• 1 tbsp Rice Flour
How to make Dal Vada:
Pulse the green chilies in a blender till they are coarsely grounded.
Drain out water from the soaked dal and pulse it a couple of times. The dal should not become a paste it should be just coarsely ground.
Mix all ingredients except oil.
Take a heavy bottomed pan and heat oil in it. Alongside take small dumplings out of dal mixture and flatten them in between your palms.
Drop these dumplings or Vada into the oil and depp fry them. Make sure the heat is between low-medium, because if the heat is high the outer portion cooks faster than the inner one giving you a semi-cooked or burnet Vada.
Once done remove the Vada from oil and drain it on a paper towel.
Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
