Vadai-Mixed Dal Vadai

Vadai often referred to as Vada is usually made from Dal/ Lentils.There are two types of vadai , Channa dal ( kadalai paruppu in Tamil) vadai and Urad dal (ulundhu in Tamil) vadai.The one i have attempted is called mixed dal vadai as i have used equal proportion of both the dals. This vadai comes as soft as urad dal vadai and as crispy as channa dal vadai. 


To Grind

Ingredients 1

  • Channa Dal-1 Cup
  • Urad Dal-1 Cup
  • Ginger-1 inch

Ingredients 2

  • Green Chillies( finely Chopped)-2 nos
  • Onion  big sized- finely chopped)-1 no
  • Coriander leaves( finely Chopped)
  • Curry leaves- 1 strand
  • Salt- as per taste
  • Hing- 1tsp
  • Oil for deep frying


Soak both the dals for an hour and grind coarsely with salt and ginger,to this add the all the ingredients from the Ingredients 2 list, mix well, check for salt at this stage and adjust accordingly.
Heat oil, check if the oil is hot enough by dropping a tiny piece of the vadai mix in to the oil, if it raises up , then the oil is hot enough.
Now make a small ball of the vadai mix, flatten it and make a hole in the center  slowly slide this in to the hot oil, and fry both the sides till you see a nice golden brown and crispy vadai. Repeat the procedure for the rest of the mix. Make sure you fry them in medium flame.
