Mixed Vegetable/Mixed Dhal Vada!



                                      Mixed vegetables/Mixed Dhal Vada

I seem to do this vada often at home during festivals and when I have guests at home! Everybody's favourite! Not very difficult to prepare also! Try it!


 For soaking for half an hour:

 1 Cup Channa dhal

 1/2 cup Thuvar dhal

 1/4 cup Urad dhal

 Add these while grinding:

 5/6 /cashews

 5 to 8 Red chillies

 3/4 Green Chillies

 Few pieces of coconut

 1" ginger

 Finely chopped vegetables for adding with the batter: 

 1/2 cup Capsicum

 1/2 cup Cabbage (This veg. gives a unique taste)

 1/2 cup carrot 

 Curry leaves and coriander leaves.


 2 tsp. of Ghee for flavour and crispness 

 1/2 tsp. of sugar and enough salt.

 For frying:

 I use unrefined groundnut oil for frying. 


Grind all the ingredients together coarsely.  Add the vegetables, ghee, salt and sugar.  Mix well.

Heat oil well, then reduce the flame a bit.  Make balls out of the batter, flatten it and drop into the oil one by one.  Wait till the bubbles come down.  Take it out and put in a paper napkin.  Chillies and salt can be reduced or added as per your taste.  

Finely chopped onions can be added to the batter to make it taste like masaal vada.  Add a bit beaten saunf also.  The taste will be heavenly.  
Just drop a line after trying this snack, if you like it! Thank you!
