I know this might not be the healthy version, but we are not going to make fried foods every day at home, so making them once in a while is totally fine.

Dill Leaves Vadai Recipe/Dill leaves Kadalai Paruppu Vadai/Dill Leaves Paruppu Vadai Recipe/Dill Leaves Vadai with Channa Dal

Dill leaves vadai is a very aromatic, delicate tasting and flavourful vada. Before going into the recipe I would like to share a few things about Dill leaves. Dill is native to Mediterranean and East European regions. Dill leaves are feathery, fern like and dark green in colour. Fresh and dried dill leaves are widely used as herbs in Russia, Germany, Greece, Poland, Norway and many other countries. In India dill is known as shepu in Marathi, savaa in Hindi, soa in Punjabi, sadhakuppu in Tamil, soa-kura in Telugu, sabbasige soppu in Kannada and chathakuppa in Malayalam. Dill is a unique plant, because both its leaves and seeds are used as seasoning. It is rich in vitamin A, C, B6, folates, riboflavin, calcium, iron and other important minerals. Dill has an essential oil called Eugenol, which has been in therapeutic use as local anaesthetic and antiseptic. Eugenol also has been found to reduce sugar levels in diabetics. Dill seeds have been used in traditional medicines for digestion, as disinfectant, for more milk production in nursing mothers and to cure neurological symptoms like headaches and neural instability.

Thayir Vadai Recipe/Curd Vadai Recipe/Dahi Vadai Recipe/Uraddal Vadai Soaked in Yogurt/How to make Thayir Vadai with step by step photos

Thayir vadai is yet another delectable and my favourite evening snack. I love it so much I can finish off one whole plate in no time. The best part of thayir/curd vadai is, though the vadai’s are fried in oil, as they are soaked in water for about a minute and when squeezing out the water all most all the oil also comes out of the vadai and they become very soft. All the goodness of yogurt/thayir, protein from urad dal, added vegetables makes this a delicious evening snack. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here and other starters/Appetizers/Evening Snacks here

Moong Dal Vadai - Rajasthani Cuisine/Moong Dal Vadai Recipe/Paasi Paruppu Vadai Recipe/How to make Moong Dal Vadai with step by step photos

For this month’s IFC challenge we are exploring Rajasthani cuisine chosen by Mrs.Manjula of Desi Fiesta. Thanks a lot Shobana, Saraswathi and Manjula for all the wonderful challenges.

Rajasthani cuisine or Marwari recipes is a splendid array of unique, rich, colourful, spicy curries and mouth-watering delectable sweets. This style of cooking, is not only the mirror of wealth and prosperity, but also reflects the traditional warrior lifestyles [the Rajputs] and the availability of ingredients in this water starved region. Food that last for several days was given more preference. Due to the scarcity of water, the cuisine involves use of milk, yogurt or buttermilk to wet the gravies. Instead of greens, they use different types of local berries. The use of lentils and legumes, mainly Jowar, Bajra and Gram flour in their food keeps the nutritional value very high. Once cooked, these most of the traditional Rajasthani vegetables can be eaten over days and don’t need refrigeration for weather condition over there keep the food good. For this month’s challenge Mrs. Manjula Bharat chose a royal festive spread of Rajasthani recipes and I chose to do few Moong dal Vadai, Missi Roti, Jaipuri Sabji for the challenge. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here.

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...
