Dal Coins / Parippu Vada

  • Channa dal 1 cup
  • Onion 1 medium
  • Green chilly 2 to 4
  • Ginger 1 med piece
  • Curry leaves
  • Salt
  • Oil

Soak channa dal for 2 hrs. Drain it completely and crush it with onion, curry leaves, green chilly and ginger. Don't grind it into a paste (use the pulse button of the mixer to crush it). Transfer it into bowl and mix the required amount of salt. Combine it well and make small balls out of it. Then, gently press the balls in between the hand and keep it aside. Heat oil in a kadai and put the vada into it. Then, reduce the flame and fry till crispy and brown. Transfer it into a tissue paper. Serve it hot with tea and banana, yes you heard it right, banana is a great combination with vada.
