Too long n I haven’t penned down non-sense here… Huh!!! It’s not about posting a lovely story or behind the scenes always… Well, all that I’m saying ‘coz I don’t have any specific story to post today, but my pending blabberings of last few days…

I think I should stop bugging you much n post a recipe now! I made ‘Mix Dal Wada’ around 3 weeks back for friends… Actually, let me clarify… I was pissed off a bit that time. I wanted to bake something for their anniversary celebration, but found my jar of caster sugar empty which didn’t allow me to execute that plan!
So I came up with another option of making savory entities, thinking they’ll enjoy it while watching movie until late night on weekend! Packed in a newspaper quite like we get on roadside stalls n clicked before re-packing it in a container :P
Ohhh yes, I packed these ones and then fried a few more for hubby to have with his cuppa tea :) And he loved it more than regular dalwada we make!!! Here is a recipe…
1/4 cup Green Moong Dal
1/4 cup Yellow Moong Dal
2 tbsp Urad Dal
2 tbsp Chana Dal
1 tbsp Besan
1 tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
1 tbsp Chopped Spring Onions
A pinch of baking soda
1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
A pinch of hing
Salt, to taste
Oil, to deep-fry
Water, if required
STEPS TO FOLLOW:
- Soak all dals together in plenty of water for around 3-4 hours.
- Drain water out of it and grind them to make a coarse batter.
- Take this mixture in a bowl and add rest of all ingredients except baking soda. Add a tbsp or 2 of water if required.
- Mix everything well and heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat.
- When oil is ready for frying, add baking soda to batter and whisk it well.
- Drop spoonful of batter in oil and do the same for 5-6 times in a batch.
- Deep fry until golden brown in color n crisp in texture.
- Take them out on an absorbent paper and serve hot with chutney!
- I never use spoon for dropping wada in hot oil. I prefer my 3 fingers rule only :P Take batter in 3 fingers (except pinky) and drop it in oil carefully using your thumb :)
- You can eliminate using garlic and onion in the same wada to make them jain!!!
