This is one of my most favourite snacks. This is also called as ‘ aamai vadai ’. Still I do not know the reason for it. With simple ingredients, this has a divine taste!

மசால் வடை


Bengal gram- 2 cups
Finely chopped green chillies-2 tsp
Finely sliced onion-3
Curry leaves- 2 arc
Finely chopped coriander- 2 tbsp
asafoetida powder- half tsp
Salt to taste
Enough oil to fry


Wash and soak the Bengal gram for an hour.
Then drain the water thoroughly.
Grind the dal with enough salt to a coarse texture.
Add all the ingredients to it and mix well.
Heat the oil.
The fire should be medium.
Take a small amount of the ground Bengal gram, make a small ball and flatten them to a vadai.
Toss it in the oil and fry it to golden brown.
Thus finish all the ground mixture.
The hot and tasty vadais are ready now!!
