Chickpeas Vegetable Masala Vadai

Chick peas r also know as garbanzo beans, kondakadalai,Chana..they r highly rich in proteins..they r low in fat, usually we used to make masala, gravy..am bored of all those, i tried it as masala vadai with a cup of mixed vegetables, they turned awesome n more crispy n also healthy coz of vegetables i have added to prepare them as vadais, perfect snacks r side dish for any sort of rice dishes..


1cup Chickpeas(dry)
10nos Shallots r green onions
1cup Mixed vegetables(grated)
2nos Green chillies
1tsp Ginger chopped
1tsp Fennel seed
3no Cloves
5nos Curry leaves
2tsp Coriander leaves
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Soak dry chick peas overnite r for 6hours...drain the water n grind themwith cloves n fennel seeds, without water in a mixie jar, dont add water,if the batter is watery u wont get the crispyness..grind them bit coarsely..meanwhile chop finely shallots r green onions(i used green onions) green chillies..take off the vada batter from the mixie, add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies,grated vegetables(i used carrots, cabbage n green bell pepper), chopped ginger, curry leaves n coriander leaves with salt..

Heat oil for deep frying, once the oil is hot, take a small ball from the batter n flat them as small vadais, put them in hot oil n cook them until they turn brownish colour..drain the excess of oil with a paper towel..fry them in batches..

Tasty Chickpeas Vadais r ready!
