It is said that bigger the crisis , the solutions are more simple. Similarly , when you are hungry, a humble dal( lentil) vadas come to your rescue and add nutrients in your meal. Sometimes , when you either do not feel like elaborate cooking or you have come home from a trip and there aren’t fresh veggies at home.
All you have to do is to cook rice, dal and fry these vadas in a jiffy. Voila you have a fulfilling lunch. I made this combination yesterday :Bjaha Moon Dal, Bhaat, Fried Red chilly and these piping hot boras.
1 cup Red lentil, wash and soak in water for minimum 3 hours
1 Onion, diced
2-3 green chillies, chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped Coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Drain out the extra water from soaked lentil and grind till you get a coarse paste in food processor.The consistency of the batter should be thick. Add the remaining ingredients except oil and mix well. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadhai. The temperature of oil should be steamy hot. Now before dropping the batter into kadhai lower the heat, otherwise the fritters will remain uncooked from inside. Drop a tbsp of batter into oil and fry on medium heat.
Flip the dumplings a few times to get a even brown crust. Remove from oil and place them on paper towel. You can serve these fritter as tea time snacks or along with Dal-Rice as bhaja.
A close up bite for you.....
