Moong Dal Vada

>>  Friday, October 5, 2012

For the last day it was a savory snack and all I could think of were those moong dal vada or pakodas that Amma used to make. Those made a great snack and even though these are deep fried, they end up being healthy 

This makes a great snack with Vegetable Biryani that had a twist!

Moong Dal Vada

Ingredients Needed:

Moong Dal - 1 cup
Onions - 1 medium
curry leaves
Green Chilies - 4- 5
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

How to make the vadas

Wash and soak the moong dal for an hour. Grind the drained moong dal along with green chilies to a semi coarse batter. Make sure you don't add too much water.

Mix in finely chopped onions and curry leaves.

Heat oil for deep frying and using a spoon, gently drop in the batter and deep fry on both sides.
