Lentil and Spinach Vada ( Chana dal and palak vada)
This recipe came in good house keeping magazine long time back, i was going through my recipe book and found this recipe in a small book which came with good house keeping magazine. These vadas minus spinach (palak) is best eaten at the street vendor bandi with chopped onions and chat masala on it. Had boiled spinach in my fridge so made these with chana dal. Here goes the recipe:-
Chana dal/Lentil 1 cup soaked for 2-3 hours
Spinach/Palak 10-15 leafs boiled
Onion 1 chopped finely
Green chillies 1 chopped finely
Ginger an inch pc chopped finely
Curry leaves few
Coriander leaves few chopped finely
Cooking soda a pinch
Salt to take
Oil for deep frying
Grind chana dal into coarse mixture. Add all the other ingredients and mix it with hand.
Take a tennis ball size mixture and press it on one hand with the other hand, make small patties.
Deep fry in batches until brown colour and serve hot with any chutney of your choice
Isn't it easy and simple....
