Baked Masala Vadai

Crispy masala vadai are my all time favourite, i can have them anytime even after a day..just love it, but the only thing i used to think always whenever preparing masala vadai is to give a trial as baked version, i prepared yesterday my envy of making out masala vadais as baking instead of deepfrying..I didnt find much difference between the deepfried one with baked masala vadais, for my taste buds they both tastes too good, coz these vadais were also with crispy exterior and soft and spongy interior as the deepfried vadais..Baking masala vadais is quite a simple method..preheat the oven and flatten the masala vadai batter in our palms, place them over a greased baking sheet and bake them for 25minutes thats it..really simple na!! Its was too hot here and cooking seems kinda hard since two days..i definitely say that baking masala vadais made my day really very easy since i didnt stay in front of hot pan for deepfrying this crispy vadais which is quite hard when its too hot...Obivously this baked masala vadais goes to Madhu's Low Fat Baking Event, also goes to MLLA-13th helping guest hosted by Sunshinemom, event started by Susan..


1cup Channadal (soaked for 2hours)
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (chopped)
1/4tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
5nos Curry leaves
 Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil for greasing

Drain the excess of the water from the channadal and grind grind the dal coarsely without adding water, if its too hard to grind just springle few drops of water..now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger pieces, chopped curry leaves, coriander leaves, crushed fennel seeds with enough salt to the grounded batter and mix everything well..Preheat the oven to 400F...

Grease a baking sheet with oil and arrange over a baking tray..make small balls from the vada batter and flatten them as small masala vadais and place one by one over the baking sheet..Bake for 25-30 minutes until they turns brown...

Enjoy the crispy and fat free vadais!!
