Namaskaaram!!!   Time to go to South India ..Kerala….the land of coconuts and backwaters!! We bring you a snack thats crispy , quick  and very traditional!! Dal Vada also popularly know in Kerela as Parippu vada is a spicy and crunchy vada which can be great snack with tea. Traditionally chana dal is used. Here I have used Chana as well as a little Urad Dal. Also down South they are fried in coconut oil and this gives them a really nice flavor.



  1. Soak the chana dal and the ural dal for atleast 4 hrs. Roast the saunf, dhania seeds, jeera and the peppers and coarsely grind them. Finely cut the green chillies, ginger and the onion. Reserve a handful of whole dals aside and grind the rest coarse.
  2. In a bowl, mix the dals with the green chillies, ginger, onion. Add the ground saunf, dhania, jeera, pepper powder, chilli powder, haldi and the salt. Mix and then add the reserved dals. If you feel the mixture is runny add some besan.
  3. For the chutney, lightly roast the urad and chana dal. Now put all the ingredients in the mixie and grind. Add water as required.
  4. For the tadka, heat a tsp of oil and add the urad dal and red chilli, when the dal becomes a little brown remove from heat and pour over the chutney. Serve with vadas
