Dry Green Peas Masala Vadai & Black Channa Sundal

Sunday, we celebrated the Saraswathi pooja with few delicious dishes, i have already posted Tender Coconut Kheer and am posting dry green peas masala vadai and black channa sundal i prepared for this occasion..Fortunately, i get broken dry green peas in local supermarket as french people prepare peas soup by using this broken dry green peas, i usually use this broken green peas for making out samosas etc but very rarely vadais since u can guess that the greenish colour of this vadais, anyhow this dry green peas masala vadais tastes fabulous as i used to add cloves and cinnamon stick while grinding the vada batter..Quiet a different also colourful delicious masala vadais which definitely replace very well the channadal vadais we used to do for...And my next post is black channa sundal, which i prepared also to celebrate Saraswathi Pooja simply with grated coconut..We have a heavy lunch and went to watch out Kamal's Movie at theatre...Had a beautiful sunday...
