Kalmi Vada

Four kinds of daals, with Chana daal being the most predominant
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Dal Serving: 6 Cooking Time: 1 hour after soaking

Ingredients

  • 1-cup chana daal (bengal gram)
  • 1/3-cup dhuli moong (husked green gram
  • 1/3-cup dhuli urad (husked black gram)
  • 1/3-cup arhar (yellow lentils)
  • 1 tbsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp heeng (asafetida)
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp meetha (baking) soda
  • 2 tsp ajwain seeds (carum/thymol)
  • Oil for deep-frying
 

Preparation

  • Clean, wash and soak the four daals for 4-5 hours.
  • Grind the daals, without using water (for you need a dough like consistency). The texture should be a bit grainy.

  • Mix in rest of the dry ingredients and shape the dough into slightly flat rounds 2-3 inch (6 cm) in diameter. Heat the oil and over high heat, put in as many balls as come in without touching, turn after about 10 seconds, and lower the heat. Cook till firm on both sides, but not brown.

  • When cool, slice into 1/2 inch (6 cm) thick slices. Before serving, deep-fry the slices, first over high heat then lowering the heat till crisp. Serve with Hari Chutney.
