Soyachunks & Chickpeas Vada

Here starts again a week of blogging marathon, this week's theme is going to be Kid's delight-Anniversary special, actually Srivalli proposed this theme coz her Spice your life is celebrating its 4th blog anniversary. Congrats Srivalli, way to go. Wishing you many more beautiful years in this blogsphere. For the first day of blogging marathon, am posting this wonderful and very interesting masal vadas i prepared few days back for our snacks. Dont get shock on reading this post title,yep this vadas goes for cooked soya chunks aka meal maker with soaked and grounded chickpeas.

Actually i want to make some crispy vadas with soya chunks since a long, but finally i tried this vadas along with chickpeas instead of channadal, oh boy these crispy beauties are super addictive. Kids at home simply enjoyed having this yummy vadas and seriously we couldnt able to stop with one. They were super addictive, serve these vadas with a cup of tea for your snacks also as a starter.Check out the other marathoners running this 20th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending this addictive crispy vadas to Srivalli's Kid's Delight-Anniversary Potluck Party and to my own event CWS-Chickpeas guest hosted by Kavi of Foodmania, to Priti's Festive Food Ganesh Chaturthi.



2cups Chickpeas (soaked overnite)
1/2cup Soyachunks/Meal maker
1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (chopped)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/2tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few Curry leaves
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Cook the soyachunks in hot water and drain the excess of water, squeeze out the water and keep aside.

Grind the chickpeas without adding water, if its too hard to grind just springle few drops of water, finally add the cooked soya chunks and grind as a bit coarse paste.

Now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger pieces, crushed garlic,curry leaves, chopped coriander leaves, crushed fennel seeds and salt to the grounded batter..

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

Serve with a cup of tea of simply with coconut chutney.
