whole urad dal - 2
cupsonions - 4 finely chopped
green chillies - 7 finely chopped
coriander leaves - 1 small bunch finely chopped
jeera - 2 tsps
salt to taste
oil for deep frying.
Preparation:1. Soak urad dal in water for about 4-5 hours/overnight. Drain water completely.2. Grind urad dal in a mixer/blender without adding water to tight paste. The batter must be thick that when you make vada's they should not run out of shape.3. Remove and add salt, jeera, chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves and mix well.

4. Heat a deep pan with oil. For making the vada's you can use your hands or a thick polythene sheet. Back at home in India, we use plantain leaves to make these vada's.6. Take a small ball of batter on to your left hand, pat into round shape and make a hole in the center.7. Drop gently into hot oil from the sides.

Fry till golden brown turning them both sides.8. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
