Mixed Dalvada

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…

2 things I enjoyed:

  • Relaxation time spent at esplanade after dinner for long hours…
  • Under water activities, especially Helmet Diving!

2 things I hated:

  • Google Search :(
  • Stubborn mind!!!

2 things I luved eating:

  • Scrambled eggs n Toast
  • Teriyaki Noodles :)

2 things I purchased:

  • Sunscreen Lotion
  • Lots of potato chips ;)

2 things I missed:

  • Home made ginger tea
  • Each corner of my sweet home!!! :(

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…

mixed dal wada

Makes: 20-22


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


  1. Soak all dals together in plenty of water for around 3-4 hours.
  2. Drain water out of it and grind them to make a coarse batter.
  3. Take this mixture in a bowl and add rest of all ingredients except baking soda. Add a tbsp or 2 of water if required.
  4. Mix everything well and heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat.
  5. When oil is ready for frying, add baking soda to batter and whisk it well.
  6. Drop spoonful of batter in oil and do the same for 5-6 times in a batch.
  7. Deep fry until golden brown in color n crisp in texture.
  8. 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!!!
