Most of like to have road side food like chat, pakodi, pav bhaji, muri mixture, masala vada etc etc..list goes on like this..I go very crazy to have this kind of food..Recently I tried to make masala vada for the first time on Diwali...Here is the recipe
Channa Dal:1.5 cups(wash n saok it for 5 hrs)
Besan:2 spn
Ginger Garlic Paste:1 spn
Garam Masala Powder:1 spn
Curry Leaves(chopped):5 to 6
Onion:1 medium(chopped finely)
Jeera:1/2 spn
Salt:Acc to Taste
Chilli Powder/Chopped Green Chillies:Acc to Taste
Clinatro(optional):2 spn
Oil:For Deep Fry
1.Drain the water and blend the channa dal into a coarse paste.
2.Add all the ingridents expect the oil and make it into a chapathi like dough.
3.Take the mixture and make it into disc shapes and put aside.
4.Heat the oil in a skillet for deep frying the discs of mixture.
5.When is hot,fry the discs till they turn golden brown.
6.Serve it hot with Tomato ketchup.
If u like take 2 spns of channadal,keep them aside and bend the remaining channa dal.
Add this 2 spn of soaked channadal to the mixture along with othet ingridents and follow the same process as told above..
Crispness of the channadal adds taste Masala Vada.
