Dill Masala Vada/Vadai

I have been planning to send in my entry to Ayeesha’s numerous events for a long time but for some reason i have not been able to do so. So i thought i will make a dish specifically for her event A.W.E.D INDIAN CUISINE hosted by Taste of Pearl City and started by DK of Chef in You.Dill leaves have a very distinct flavour and this vadai with all its flavour is great to munch on.

Gram dhal 3/4 cup

Red gram dhal 1/4 cup

Onion 1 small

Dill leaves 1/2 cup

Asafoetida a pinch

Oil for deep frying

Salt to taste


Soak the dhal’s together in enough water for 1 hour or so.

Chop the onion finely.

Clean the dill leaves and chop the leaves finely

Now drain the dhal completely and grind it coarsely without water.

To this mixture add the cut onion and leaves. Add the required salt too.

Make small balls, shape it into a Pattie and deep fry it till golden brown.

Drain into a absorbent paper and serve hot.

I served it along with Coconut Rice.

These flavourful vadai’s are on their way to A.W.E.D INDIAN CUISINE
