Gujarat na Daal Vada - Spicy lentils deep fried Fritters !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Gujarat na daal Vada became famous from the Dal vada street vendors outside the Gujarat College in Ahmedabad city of Gujarat state – almost nothing to do with the state of “Gujarat” in it’s name!!!! Mostly every collegians pass their free time at those vada stall and snacking on those irresistible vadas. If you are passing by from there, the frying vada smells tempts you to buy those vadas, just wrapped in old newspaper. But tell your mum or wife that you've snacked on those vada's then she definetley will roll up her eyes at you :)



All these things never happened to me, I never ever snacked those vadas from outside while I was student or neither my dad brought them home either. Luckily my mum had this recipe and she always used to make them at home, as she was concern about food hygiene and was health conscious about buying food from outside.



So, today I am presenting her recipe here and what can I say ! As soon as the vadas were ready to eat everyone at the dinner table was happily vanishing them in no time :)))

You will need :-
1 cup  split yellow moong daal
1 cup  split green moong daal
Salt to taste
10-12 fresh green chillies
2" fresh ginger
6-8 cloves garlic
Pinch of baking soda
Oil for deep fry
More green chillies to serve
One medium onion chopped to serve



Method:-
Clean, wash and soak both daals together for 6-7 hours or overnight.
In the morning once again wash daals in clean water and throw away water.
Place both daals in a grinder and grind daal to coarse mixture with chillies, garlic and ginger with very little water. Make sure mixture is not runny.
Now add salt and soda and mix everything.
Heat oil in a frying pan.
Take a spoonful of mixture and drop it in a hot oil , fry vada on a medium to low heat till vadas are light brown.
Vada should be crispy outside and soft inside.
Fry green chillies in oil and sprinkle little salt on them.
Serve hot vada with fried green chillies and chopped onion.
You won't need any type of chutney or dip with this Gujarat na vada.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
