It is so popular in street side stalls and restaurants in South India. We all love Medu Vada more than masala vada. So it will appear in our menu occasionally only. You should grind the batter coarsely to make it crunchy. Add any spices of your choice. Fennel and garlic makes it more flavorful. It is so quick and easy to make once you have the dal soaked.

Notes

Mixture should be coarsely grinded to make it crunchy.

There should be much water in the chana dal while grinding. If the mixture is little loose, you can add little rice flour to bring together.

In street side, sometimes they add little rava too.

You can use banana leaf or parchment paper to shape the vada instead of making them in palms.

You can skip onion and garlic and make it as no onion and garlic recipe.
