I recently had guests at landed when it was raining very heavily.So i had to cook something very fast but which they would like for the rainy weather . Went into the kitchen and saw that I had no onion to make bajji. so checked the fridge to see what vegetables were available and i could see only cabbage and zucchini. I thought why not sneak in the zucchini in masala vadai . With a little apprehension I tried and served hot vadai’s to them and they enjoyed it without realising it had a good amount of zucchini too
Soak the two dals together in enough water for 1/2 hr
Meanwhile grate the zucchini. Squeeze out the water and keep aside
Drain the water from the dal completely. Transfer the dal without any water to the mixer jar. Add the chilli, salt, corainder and asafoetida
Grind it very coarsely without water for in pulses. Do not grind it smooth
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.
Mix the grated zucchini with the ground dal. Make small patties and deep fry till golden brown on medium flame. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve with a cup of hot coffee
