I made this when i had some guests for dinner. It was very good and fairly easy. Frying part was time consuming and boring as with any other deep fried stuff :))
Rice - 1 cup
Channa daal - 1/2 cup
Toor Daal - 1/2 cup
Red chillies - 10
Hing - 1/2 spoon
Salt to taste
Wash and soak rice, channa daal and toor daal for couple of hours. Add redchillies, hing, salt and grind with very little water. Pat them into small discs and deep fry in oil till they are golden brown. The oil should be between medium and medium high. If it is too high, the inside of the vadas will remain uncooked.
Everyone loved it,especially my first son and my husband.
Note : You can add chopped onions and cilantro if you want. I didn't add onions as i made these on a saturday. Also, you dont have to shape them like vadas, you can just drop the batter with spoon. Taste is what matters, right? :-)
