Masala Vaada

Masala Vaada

Hi Friends for the last week i can’t post any recipes.As i was not feeling well due to severe cold and cough.And i was not able to sit in front of the system and write the post.Today feeling much better than last week.I prepared this Masala Vaada on Sunday morning for my breakfast along with idly and sambar which is very famous in Andhra.In Every hotel they serve Vaada with idly and sambar.Here goes the recipe..


Channa Dal-1cup
Dry red chilies-4nos
Grated ginger-1tsp
Chopped onions-1cup
Chopped coriander leaves-2tbsp
Turmeric a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


Wash and soak Dal for 3to 4hours.Once time is done.Drain the water from the Dal.

Pop Dal and all the above ingredients expect oil in a mixer.Grind them into a coarse paste don’t make the paste smooth.Transfer the paste into a bowl.

Heat a pan with enough oil for deep frying these vaadas.Take the paste like a lemon size ball and
press them between your palms and fry them in oil on medium flame till they turn into crispy on outer side.Repeat the process for the entire paste and fry them in batch’s.Transfer them on to kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.

Enjoy eating tasty tasty vaada with idly -sambar or like it self.
