How to make Kanji Vadas:
In a bowl, add mustard seeds, black salt, chilli powder and salt. Blend this mixture in a mixer to make a fine powder.
Now, add 1 litres of water to this mixture and mix well. The kanji is ready. All you need to do now is refrigerate it for about 24 hours.
To make the vadas, soak the moong dal in water for about four hours. Thereafter, drain out the water and make a coarse paste of moong dal.
Add ginger paste, green chilli paste, salt, hing and fennel seeds to the moong dal mixture and mix well.
Now, take a pan and heat oil in it.
Take about two tablespoons of the paste in wet hand and give it a circular shape. Now fry this in the hot oil till it turns golden brown.
Repeat the same procedure with rest of the moong dal paste.
Keep aside the fried vadas and let them cool.
Put these vadas in water for about an hour, so that they become soft. Thereafter, squeeze out the water from the vadas and soak them in the kanji.
Keep them in the kanji for atleast one hour.
Enjoy chilled and spicy Kanji vadas.
