How to Make Dal Vada Recipe

  • Pulse the green chillies in a blender until they are coarsely ground.
  • Drain out the water completely from the soaked dal and grind it.
  • The dal should only be coarsely ground and it should not become a paste.
  • Mix all the ingredients together, except the oil.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan.
  • Meanwhile, take small dumplings out of the dal mixture and flatten them in between your palms.
  • Drop the vada into the hot oil and Deep Fried until it well done.
  • Make sure to keep the heat between low- medium.
  • If the heat is too high, the outer portions get cooked faster than the inner, and you'll end up with either burnt vadas or semi-cooked vadas.
  • Once done, remove from oil and drain into paper towels.
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or ketchup.
