Yummy Mixed Dal Vada (Mixed Lentil Fritters)

          These are simple and tasty homemade style vadas made out of mixed lentils (chana, moong, urad and masoor dal). They can be served as a great tea-time snack or as appetizers along with some green chutney or ketchup. I added some kalonji (nigella seeds) for some great flavour along with other ingredients. 

          They can also be had as a side dish along with dal-chawal (rice-lentil combo) which is my personal favourite. Any leftover vadas can be crumbled and served along with beaten yoghurt, red & green chutney, sev, etc as an excellent chaat snack. 

  • 2 tbsp. moong dal (split green gram)
  • 2 tbsp. chana dal (Bengal gram)
  • 2 tbsp. urad dal (split black gram)
  • 2 tbsp. masoor dal (red lentil)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 fresh red chilies, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. amchur powder (dry mango powder)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. kalonji (nigella seeds)
  • oil to deep fry

          Soak the lentils for two hours. Drain and grind without any water to a slightly coarse paste. Mix with all the other ingredients, except oil and keep aside.

          Heat oil in a pan and drop spoonfuls of the batter. Deep fry them few at a time on a low flame till golden in colour. 

           Drain on a kitchen towel and serve them hot with green chutney or ketchup.
