Split yellow peas/Mattar ki dal/ Pattaani paruppu-1 cup
Ginger- 2" piece
Fennel Seeds-1 teaspoon
Drumstick leaves(washed and cleaned)~~1/2cup
Wash and soak the dal for 2 hours.
Drain the water, keep a fist full of dal aside.
Take the remaining dal with ginger-garlic-green chillies and grind it to a coarse paste (without adding water).
Chop the onion and drumstick leaves finely.
Combine the onion,fennel seeds, drumstick leaves, whole dal kept aside, enough salt with the ground dal mix everything together.
Heat Oil in a kadai. Make small balls out of the vada mixture, flatten each ball slightly with your palm, and drop carefully into the hot oil.
Fry the vadas till they become golden colour on both the sides. Take them out and drain the excess oil on a paper towel. Enjoy it with a hot cup of tea!
This post was lying in my drafts for a long time..During my last visit to India, I prepared this. As it was raining the other day, it was chill and everybody wanted to munch something..our neighbours made Bonda and we made Vada. Everybody enjoyed both the snacks with garam garam chai! :)))))
