How to Make Tangy Vada Curry

  • Soak channa dal for 8-10 hours and grind it coarsely.
  • Add a little salt, make small vadas (don't bother about the shape of the vadas) and keep aside.
  • In a broad saucepan, add a little oil, then add the cardamom and bay leaves.
  • Next add the garlic which is cut lengthwise.
  • Add the onions (cut lengthwise), fry till they are brown and add the green chillies, slit lengthwise.
  • Now add ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell goes.
  • Add the chopped tomato and red chilli powder, fry for 2 minutes and close the lid for a few minutes till the tomato is cooked.
  • Now add 4-5 cups of water and let it boil. When the water starts boiling, add the chopped mint leaves and coriander leaves.
  • Take the vadas, mash them roughly with your hand (do not add whole) and add to the boiling water.
  • Finally, add the fennel seeds which should be ground coarsely.
  • Add salt and remove from fire. If the curry becomes very thick, add some more water. The curry should neither be too thick nor too thin.
