Parippu vada is crunchy spicy evening snack in kerala served with cofee and Banana. I especially love it with black cofee. You cant miss any traditional coffee shop without this Parippu vada or any malayalee who doesnt like parippu vada. Even my son who havent got the canine teeth loves it.
Parippu (dhal)-2 cups
*Soak dal for around 4 hours.
* In a blender, Grind them to a coarse paste without adding water.its okay to have some ungrinded dhal because those few whole dhals give the look and texture to vada
* Chop the onion, green chilli and ginger and saute ithem in oil till golden brown
* Mix the dhal and onion-chilli mix together with chopped curry leaves, Asafotida and salt to taste
* Make a ball out of the dhal mixture and slightly flatten on the palm of your hand similar to a pattie
* Fry them in oil on medium high till it turns golden brown colour. Remove from oil and drain.
