Chana Dal Wada

*************************************************************


Chana Dal Wada with Dill leafs


Crisp on the outside and soft inside,these are also known as dal wadas. This ia called 'Chattambade' in Kannada. I love this wada, my mother makes it very nice and crispy. So this is very nice snack during winter and rainy days. I made these wadas with dill leafs, they are wonderful.

Usually make it with coriender leafs or Mint leafs or Dill leafs. Can make wada on our perference. I had dill leafs so tried with it. Dill has it strong smell and flaour no need to add any other leafs.

I'm sending these Chana dal wada to..
1. Trupti of "Recipe Center", who is hosting Winter Treat Event.
2. Srivalli of "Cooking 4 all season", for her My legume love affair Event.
Updated : 3. Sunshinemom of "Tongueticklers", hosting an event with the theme Yellow-Food in colors



Ingredients

1 cup Bengal gram dal (chana dal)
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
4 tblsp chopped Dill leafs
3-4 tblsp grated fresh coconut(optional)
salt to taste
oil for deep frying


Method

1.Soak the chana dal overnight or 4-5 hours minimum.
2.Grind the dal with the dry red chillies with a little water to get a thick coarse paste
3.Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
4.Shape into small wada and deep fry in hot oil till golden brown. Ensure that the wada are cooked in the centre also.While frying the wada you have to start with hot oil, and then reduce the flame in order to cook the dal without over browning the outer surface.
5.Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with coconut chutney or can pick and start snacking :)!!

It is not late, Arch! The event is on upto 30th, and I will be doing a second round up in the first week of Feb! Thank you for my favourite vadas. I do not like dill very much but in these vadas they add a subtle flavor which I learned to appreciate during my Bangalore experiences! Yours are spherical while mine are disc shaped:)
