Parupu Vadai/ Masala Vadai recipe

Step 1:

You will need
  • 2 cups bengal gram/chana dal
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 3 green chillis
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1tbsp of chopped ginger
  • curry leaves
  • coriander leaves ( cilantro)
  • salt
  • oil for frying
Step 2:

Soak and grind

Soak chana dal in warm water for half an hour and drain it for half an hour. Then grind it without adding water such that it should not become a paste.

Step 3:

Adding ingredients:

Dal should be semi ground then add the rest of the ingredients just to fold them in with the dal. Don't grind them for long. May be only for a second or two.

Step 4:

Deep fry:

Divide the above mixture into equal portions, flatten in the palm of your
hand and deep-fry in vegetable oil till light-golden-brown. Drain the oil by placing it in the paper towel.

Serve it hot with a cup of tea or coffee.


You can freeze it after making masala vadas. Just microwave it when its needed. Not very crispy when you heat it after freezing. But the taste wont varies!!
