The moment a South Indian buys a cup of tea , he would also buy a plate of Chana Dal Vada to accompany it! That is how popular this tasty South Indian Chana Dal Vada is.


And not without reason. With loads of onions, coriander, green chillies and spices, this vada is a real tongue tickler. Not only that, the coarsely ground chana dal paste results in super crispy vadas that make you reach out for more... and more... till somebody whacks your hand and tells you to stop!


South Indian snacks like Bonda , Thattai , Medu vada and Urad Dal and Vegetable Appe also make delicious evening tea snacks or snacks for entertaining when served with coconut chutney.

   Hi, Make sure there is not much water when you blend it, if you add more water you will not be able to deep-fry them...
