Crispy Lentil Fritters

A crispy snack ,nice to have with tea!


1 cup channa dhal (soaked overnight)
¼ inch piece ginger
3 cloves of garlic
¼ tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp fennel seeds (sombhu)
A small piece cinnamon
1 clove
1 sprigs curry leaves
1 dried red chilli
1 sprig coriander leaves
1 medium sized onion
Salt to taste


Drain the channa dhal completely.
Grind all the ingredients *coarsely without adding any water.
Make balls from the mixture and flatten them.
Deep** fry the vadas till it is golden brown on both sides .

*Grinding the mixture coarsely gives a crunchy texture and enhances the taste.
**Heat the oil, and turn the stove to medium while frying the vadas.
