A cup of Tea and masala vada cant be replaced with anything to eat while raining outside. During Winter at evening times,my bf will be very desperate to reach home early from office as he knows i would ve prepared it.It goes well with coconut chutney. I like Rasa vada more than masala vada as my mom makes "Rasa Vada". Rasa vada is made out of masala vada immersed into hot rasam for an hour, the taste is awesome and i love that with hot idly.

  • Rava/Sooji-1 Tspn
  • Onion-1 (Finely Chopped)
  • Green Chillies-4 Nos
  • asafoetida- half tspn
  • Fennel Seeds- half Tspn
  • Ginger- 1 Small pieces 
  • Garlic- 5 Small nos


Soak Channa dal atleast for 5 hours, drain completly the water and grind it not fine mixture, and not very rough too.
You will get the mixture if you grind it without adding much water.

Grind ginger,garlic,green chillies coarsely.

Now, mix the ginger garlic mixture with the channa dal,add finely chopped onion,asafoetida,fennel seeds,rava.Make the mixture as
Vada shape and keep aside.

Deep fry in hot oil and flip both the sides, until it becomes golden brown and transfer it to the paper towel.


"Adding rava will make the vada crispy and good taste and its optional too.

Oil should very hot while dropping the vada into it, else it will get seperated from the oil.

You can add a pinch of baking soda as well if you need to make it more crispy.

As i mentioned above, if you want rasa vada, you can make masala vada and immerse in hot rasam for atleast half an hour."
