Jackfruit Seed Vadai/Palaakottai Paruppu Vadai

Simple vadai with dals n with jackfruit seeds, southindians add usually these seeds while preparing gravies r else as simple side dishes, to give a change to all those routine way of preparing i tried them out a vadais, they turned out delicious, can be a excellent side for lemon rice, tamarind rice n also as evening snacks, for snacks they will be awesome if they r served with coconut chutney...Sending this delicious vada to AFAM-Jackfruit guest hosted by LG of Tast of Mysore, event started by Maheswari...

Soak both channa dal n moong dal separately for 2 hours..meanwhile chop finely onions, green chillies..cook the jackfruit seed in hot water, drain the cooked water n grind bit coarsely the seeds in a mixie..
Grind channa dal bit coarsely before taking out from the grinder r mixie jar add the soaked moong dal n grind along with fennel seed n salt..just sprinkle the water if its kinda hard to grind..
