Daal Vada (Known as Chatambade in Konkani)

This is something that would be prepared as a snack in our house(most of houses of people from Karnataka-India) with a hot cup of tea/coffee in the morning or evening.I can still remember the wonderful taste and smell of this wada.So i would like to share the recipe for this yummy snack.

2 cup Chana dal(Spilt chick peas) soaked in water for 3-4 hrs.
1 small onion chopped finely.
2 green chillies chopped
1 inch of ginger chopped finely
2 tbspn of chopped coconut pieces
1 Whole red chilli
Pinch of Hing (Asefotido)
Salt to taste.
1 stick of curry leaves( chop it)
Oil for deep frying.

Grind chanadal and whole red chilli in a paste(Avoid adding water as much as possible also if there are few pieces of chanadal which is not finely done even better it taste crunchier when fried.)Add hing, curry leaves, green chillies, ginger, onion, coconut pieces and salt and mix it well. Take Oil in a pan and make sure to check it is hot. Take the paste in you hand and make flat cutlet and fry it in oil. Turn the wadas to make sure they are fried on both sides and are golden brown in color.
Serve this wadas with coconut-coriander chutney.
Chutney recipe on the blog too.
Enjoy !!!!

P.S. If for some reason you added more water then required to the paste or cant make the cutlets from paste add chickpeas flour to the batter.It helps t hold the batter together.
