It is the same form of making with any Lentils.Here I show with Red Lentils and Toor Dhall.
The best rerults in taste will be only if you add dried Maldive fish.As a subsitute you can add tiny dried shrimps or tiny dried sprats.But nothing to beat the Maldive fish.
Step 1: Ingredients
2 Cups Toor Lentils
Dried Maldive fish
1-1 /2 spoon Paprika powder
1 tea sp Turmeric Powder
Oil to fry
Capsicum chillies 2
Few green chillies -option
Salt to taste
Dried red chillie pieces (Not in pic) Option
Step 2: Soak & Grind
Drain the water completely.Let it hang in the strainer for a while until the water has drained fully.
Grind the lentils in to small bits and pieces.DO NOT MAKE IT A PASTE.Suppose it is dry and you need water JUST put one or two drops only ,if needed more then gradually add in drops.If you use more water it becomes soggy and you won't be able to make little balls and also it will crack while deep frying.
The last image shows that I have taken a little bit from the red and Toor lentils and mixed together.
Step 3: Chopp
If you want you can add more onions.
Step 4: Add
Dried Maldive fish gives a very good taste.If you do not have dried Maldive fish ,then you can add tiny dried sprats or dried little shrimps.This is a must for VADAI'S
Instead of big onions use small red onions -The taste is much better.I did not have at the time of making it.
Step 5: Make Shapes
Step 6: Deep Fry
Step 7: Enjoy
Can't wait to eat...
