- Channa daal- 2 cups
- Finely chopped onion-1
- Chopped green chilly-1
- Garlic cloves 1-2
- Red chilly 1-2
- Green chilly 1-2
Now add the garlic and red chilly in the food processor and grind it
Drain and add the daal into the processor along with some salt and mix it.
Add a little bit of water to make a thick paste out of the mixture (this should not be watery)
Take the paste out and mix it with the chopped onions, green chillies and 1 tsp of non soaked fresh channa daal
take a tblsp of the mixture and make a ball out of it, place it in your palm and flatten it out
Place this flattened ball in the hot oil and deep fry it until crisp brown.
Masala vada ready!
If you find it too watery, add some basin and mix it up until you get the right consistency.
The additional tsp of non soaked daal would give that extra crunchiness in the vada.
