Method 
Wash and soak the channa dhal for two to three hours. Drain the water completely and keep it aside. 



Now grind channa dhal, fennel seeds, red chillies to a coarse mixture, make sure you don't make it in to a paste. You should be able to see the dhal here and there. Transfer it to a bowl.


Now add finely chopped onions, green chillies, garlic,ginger, coriander leaves, curry leaves, salt to the dhal and mix them together.

Do not add water, you can sprinkle some water when grinding the dhal if you think it is dry.  It will look crumbly but you will be able to make vada's easily. Then make lemon sized ball out of the mixture, pat them on your palm to form a circle to medium thickness.




Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them until golden brown. Yes, now yummy yummy masala vadai is ready to be served. 

                  
Enjoy your pleasant evening with this yummy crunchy masala vadai with a hot cup of tea...
