Masala Vadai/பருப்பு வடை/Channa Dhall Vada

Parripu vadai or masala vadai as it is famously known in Malaysia is my favourite.  Its a donut sort of like indian snack made of coarsely grinded channa dhal with chillies, onions and curry leaves.

What you need
  • 2 cups of channa dhall(kadala parippu) soaked for atleast several hours.
  • 1 big onions - chopped finely
  • 1-2 green/red chilly - sliced
  • 1-2 sprig of curry leaves
  • salt to taste
  • oil for frying
How to do...
  • Grind coarsely the dhall with no water.
  • Add in the chopped onions, chilly, curry leaves, salt and mix well
  • Heat oil in a wok/pan
  • Take a small ball of grinded dhall, pat on the palm of your hand, flatten it and slip slowly in the hot oil
  • Make a few more of the same and fry the vadai.
  • Turn on each side till golden brown.
  • Serve hot
Enjoy...
