  • 150g - puffed Rice
  • 250g - Chana dal (soaked for 4 hours)
  • 3 green chillies, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tsp - chopped Ginger
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp - chopped Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp - chopped Curry leaves
  • 2 medium onions, cut into small pieces
  • 2 pinches of aniseed
  • 2 tbsp - Rice flour
  • Oil to deep fry
  • How to Make Chana dal and puffed rice vada:

    1. Wash puffed rice thoroughly (to remove any fine sand particles) and squeeze dry; keep aside.
    2. Drain dal and make a coarse paste with a little water.
    3. Mix all the ingredients (except oil) thoroughly and prepare a tight paste.
    4. Make 1/2-inch thick vadas and fry in oil on medium heat to a nice golden colour.
    5. Remove onto a paper towel to absorb excess oil, if any (usually this vada does not absorb oil).
    6. Serve as a teatime snack.
