Lentils Fritters/vada

Its been a while since i made any snacks for tea.Making tea itself is a challenge at times when baby is awake so this weekend i decided to make some snack.I had some urad dal left from my stuffing for the puris and some boiled channa/chick peas.So i thought let me do something :) I keep doing such things which is how the blog came up :D


I mixed both the lentils and made a semi wet course mixture and added some spices the end result was pretty much pleasing :) a good accompaniment for the evening tea!Besides being a healthy food, urad dal is really healthy for women.


Usually for all MM i really struggle to come up with even a single entry but this time i;m glad i could prepare 2 dishes.This one is for MM too the magic ingredients being urad dal and lime.

You need

Urad dal half cup soaked for 2 hours
Chana/chick peas half cup or less cooked
Chilli powder a pinch
Green chilli 2
Cilantro a small bunch
Lime juice 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Oil to deep fry



  •  Blend the lentils into a course semi wet mixture such that we should be able to make vadas out of it.
  • Make a paste of the cilantro,ginger garlic paste, lime juice and green chillies.Mix this into the lentil paste.
  • Make round vadas and heat oil, drop 3 4 vadas at a time and fry until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with sauce/chutney and tea.


Enjoy your tea with some delicious vadas!





Dish it out
