Parippu Vada /Chana dal fritters



Back home Parippu vada is a very popular tea time snack and people who love it go crazy for it, but I was never a parippu vada fan but once in while I too enjoy this with a cup of tea.

When I got hold of some banana leafs recently  I went crazy making use of it, I made  ela ada first, then I made fish pollichathu as well and still there was one more left and since it was stored in fridge it was going a bit yellow after few days, so just before chucking it into the bin I wanted to use it one more last time thats how I decided to make something and shoot it in banana leaf .Yes you read it right, I made this parippu vada just to take picture in banan leaf ! S who goes crazy for parippu thought that I made this especially for him without knowing my intention, anyway he was one happy boy that day and ate almost 3/4 th of the parippu vada :)


Ingredients (makes about 10 parippu vada )
Chana dal / Kadala parippu  - 1 cup
Onion - small ( finely chopped )
Green chillies/  -1 -2 (I didnt use it )
Curry leaves/ kariveppila( torn into pieces )  - few
Fennel / Perum jeerakam - 1/2 tsp
Ginger - 1 tbs (finely chopped )
Asafoetida - pinch
salt
Oil for deep frying

Method
  • Soak Chana dal in hot water for 3 hours.
  • Drain the chana dal and make a coarse paste of it in a food processor or mixie.
  • Transfer it into a bowl and add finely chopped onion, green chillies, curry leaves , fennel and asafoetida, salt and mix well.
  • Make equal sized ball out of it and flaten the balls a little bit by pressing them in between the palms.
  • Heat oil in a pan on a medium flame and deep fry the parippu vada until golden brown.

Hello Aunty,
What oil would you say would be best for frying?

@anonymous ..thank u, I used sunflower oil but coconut oil might give it an authentic taste :)So I recommend either sunflower oil or coconut oil :)
