PARIPPUVADA



Parippuvada is one of my favorite snack to have at tea time or as appetisers during a party.These are savory crispy cakes made mainly of chana dal.For more flavor onions,curry leaves,ginger,green chillies are also added.The flavor of crispy curry leaves in it compliments very well with tea or coffee.This is very popular in South India.
I am sending this to Mansi of fun and food who is hosting this months MM-appetizers and Hors'Doeuvres which is originally started by meeta of whats for lunch honey?
INGREDIENTS

Chana dal - 1 1/2 cup
onion - 1 medium size,diced
green chillies - 4 nos, chopped fine
curry leaves - of 2-3 sprigs,coarsely chopped(I add a lot coz it enhances the flavor of the vadas)
grated ginger - 1 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
oil for deep frying

METHOD

Soak chana dal for about 4-5 hrs.Coarsely grind it without adding water until it all comes together.If required to add water then add just a little bit,just enough to help grind it.To check the consistency take some in your hand and squeeze it,if it holds together then u have got the right consistency.Transfer it to a bowl.Add the diced onions,ginger,curry leaves ,green chillies and salt.Using ur hand mix it all together until its well combined.Check the salt.

Let it rest in the refrigerator for 1 hr.Make small tight balls of it(size of a lemon)and press it gently to make it slightly flat and let it rest on a plate for 5-10 mins before frying.Heat oil in vessel.When it gets hot slowly drop them in the oil and frying them until golden brown.Put it on paper towel to remove the excess oil.Serve hot with ketchup.

You can also have it soaked in warm rasam .Check roopa of rvkitchentreats post on rasa vada .
