Channa Dal Rasa Vadai

Channa Dal Rasa Vadai-.Here in US,in hotels rasa vadai means we get medhu vada soaked in rasam.In my hometown,rasa vadai means channa dal vada or parupu vadu or aama vada soaked in rasam.This is an entry for breakfast in most of the houses on Diwali day along with idly,sambar,chutney combo.This is my favourite.In some houses,the vadais are made the day before diwali and soaked in rasam.The more it is soaked,the more tasty it is.

  • Channa dal(kadala parupu)-1 cup
  • Onion-1 medium finely chopped
  • Cilantro- 5 0r 6 stripes finely chopped
  • Red chilli powder-3/4 tsp
  • Fennel -1/2 tsp(optinal)
  • Salt-to taste
  • Soak the channa dal for 2 hrs.Grind in a blender without adding water.
  • Add the rest of the ingrediants and make into small balls
  • Deep fry in oil until golden brown
On the day i made vada,i had left over sambar too.So i made sambar and rasa vadai

parupu vadai,sambar,rasam

rasa vadai(parupu vadai soaked in rasam)
