2) Toor dhal - 1/2 cup3) Urad dal - 1 fistful
4) Red chilli - 6 nos.
5) Hing - a pinch
6) Curry leaves - a few
7) Salt to taste
8) Oil - for deep frying
1)Soak all the 3 dals and redchilli in water for 2 hours.
2)Soak 3 tbsp of gram dhal separately.
3)After 2 hrs, drain the water completly and grind the dhals(3 dals+redchilli) to a coarse paste without adding water.
4)Now add that 3 tbsp of gram dhal to this coarse paste and mix them well.
5)To this, add hing, curry leaves and salt as required.
6)Heat oil in a pan for frying the vadas.
7)Take a small ball from the paste and flatten them with your palm and drop them in the oil.
