Festival cooking is usually done without onion and garlic. Since now it festival season, I am posting paruppu vadai without onions. This vadai is prepared with kadalai paruppu (channa dal) and tur dal. It can be prepared in a matter of 15 minutes. Today we will learn how to prepare kadalai paruppu vadai following this easy recipe.
Soak both channa dal and tur dal for 1 hour. After 1 hour, drain the water completely.
Take 1/4 cup of the soaked dal and keep it aside.
Grind the rest of the dal together with red chillies, green chillies, hing and salt coarsely.
Now add the 1/4 cup of dal we kept aside. Mix everything well.
Make equal sized balls out of the mix and flatten it with you fingers as shown below.(1 pic)
Heat oil in a kadai. To check if the oil is hot enough, drop a little batter into the oil, if it raises to the surface immediately, the oil is hot enough to fry the vadas.
Now reduce the flame to medium, add 3 flattened patties into the oil. Let it cook for some time. Then flip it over to the other side. Once it turns golden brown, remove from the oil and place it in a kitchen towel or colander to drain off the excess oil. Paruppu vadai is ready.
Enjoy making these easy, quick and delicious paruppu vadas for this festive season.
Note – If you want you can add 1 medium sized finely chopped onions to the above batter.
