Kadaparippu Vada

Today my post is about a snack which most of us make at home, vada, and this time it is 'Kadalaparippu Vada'. Also i tried to take photographs from a different area.. but i was not at all satisfied by the outcome...Though my clicks was not good.. but the vada's was crisp and yummy .... do have a look a the recipe..
  1. Channa Daal /Kadalaparippu/Split Bengal Gram - 1 cup
  2. Onion - 1 medium
  3. Green chilly - 2 - 3
  4. Ginger - 1 -2 Tsp finely chopped
  5. Turmeric powder - 1/2 Tsp
  6. Red chilli powder - 1 Tbsp
  7. Chopped coriander - 1/4 cup
  8. Curry Leaves - 2-3 Sprigs
  9. Asafoetida - a pinch
  10. Salt - to taste
  11. Oil - for deep frying

  • Soak channa daal with enough water for 2 - 3 hours. 
  • Drain water completely. Grind to a coarsely but not so smooth paste in a mixer for just 3 - 4 pulses without adding any water.
  • Transfer it to a bowl and add all other ingredients, except oil and gently mix it together. 
  • Make equal sized balls with the daal mix and flatten it a little bit by pressing them in between your palm.
  • Heat oil for deep frying on high flame. When oil is really hot, reduce the flame to low medium and slowly add 3 to 4 vadas at a time and deep fry until crispy and golden brown. Cook both sides.Drain excess oil on a tissue paper.
  • Serve hot with tea  or coffee.

  • Make sure that there isn't much water left in the daal before grinding otherwise the vada will break apart.
  • Adjust the spiciness according to your level.
