Chickpeas & Bread Masal Vadai

Its too cold here also its getting dark everyday at 4pm, most of our snacks goes for hot cup of tea or coffee, finally after a long hesitation i prepared this chickpeas and bread masal vadai with some soaked chickpeas and stale bread slices..For my surprise this masal vadai turned out super crispy and delicious..We enjoyed having this crispy beauties with a hot cup of tea..Simple masal vadai goes prefect along with some spicy coconut chutney or else with rice dishes...Needless to say that from now there wont be stale breads anymore at home, am gonna try this masal vadai with different beans,yeah we loved this crispy vadai that much..Sending to Kid's Delight-Holiday Special hosted by Srivalli..

Chickpeas & Bread Masala Vadai

2cups Chickpeas (soaked overnite)
5nos Stale bread slices
2nos Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (grated)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/4tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
5nos Curry leaves
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil

Drain the excess of the water from the chickpeas also soak the stale bread slices in water and squeeze out the excess of water.. Grind the chickpeas,bread slices coarsely without adding water, if its too hard to grind just springle few drops of water..now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies,grated ginger, crushed garlic,chopped curry leaves, coriander leaves, crushed fennel seeds with enough salt to the grounded batter...

Heat the oil for deepfrying..make small balls from the vada batter and flatten them..drop gently the flattened vadais to the hot oil and fry until they turns golden brown..

This reminds me of lentil (parippu) vada. Addition of bread is quite interesting, a perfect snack for tea time.
