Crisp on the outside and soft inside, these South Indian wadas served with coconut chutney make a delicious snack. While frying these you have to start with hot oil, and then reduce the flame in order to cook the dal without over browning the outer surface.

Makes approx.30 wade.

Ingredients
1 cup Bengal gram dal (chana dal)
2 whole dry red chillies
2 teaspoons finely chopped green chillies
1 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
½ cup finely chopped onions
4 tablespoons chopped coriander
½ cup grated fresh coconut
2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
coconut chutney to serve
Method
1. Clean, wash and soak the dal overnight. Drain.
2. Grind the dal with the dry red chillies, green chillies and cumin seeds and a little water to get a thick coarse paste.
3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
4. Shape into small wadas and deep fry in hot oil till golden brown. Ensure that the wadas are cooked in the centre.
5. Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with chutney.
