On Sep 17, 2016, in Recipe, by urbandazzle

Moong Dal Vada


  • 1 cup moong dal (yellow split)

  • 2 tablespoons fresh coconut, grated

  • 2 sprigs curry leaves

  • Salt to taste

  • 2 small green chilies

  • 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida (hing)

  • 2 tablespoons roasted gram (phutana)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut pieces

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

  • Oil to deep fry


  • Firstly soak the moong dal for 4 to 6 hours.

  • Drain dal. Make sure there is no water left in the dal.

  • Combine all the ingredients mentioned except the roasted gram(phutana). Grind this to a coarse mixture.

  • Make sure the dal is ground so that dal pieces are not left in the batter. Add phutana to this.

  • Make sure there is no water content in this batter.

  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan. When the oil is hot enough, make small patties on your palm and slowly drop them in oil.

  • Fry them till crispy and golden in colour. Drain them on kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.

Serve Moong Dal Vada with dhaniya pudina chutney and garlic chutney in the elegant serving platters from UrbanDazzle. Relish them along with a hot cup of tea.
