Spicy deep fried fritters made with chana dal / bengal gram...
1.While blending, water is not added as we require a very thick and coarse paste to make these vadas.
2.Few more ingredients like black pepper, fennel seeds powder, carom seeds, curry leaves too can be added to enhance the flavor or to give more spicy flavor.
3.Garam masala powder and dried red chillies can be skipped to reduce the spicy flavor.
4.Do not deep fry on high flame as frying on high flame would make the vadas cook outside but the inner side is not cooked completely.
5.Soaking of the dal is must to make the masala vada.
