Masala vada is famous in South India and there are quite a number of variations of this recipe. One can add vegetables, greens and other ingredients to this vada mixture. Vada is my hubby’s favorite snack, he would finish off the entire batch of vada. We normally make this vadai during festivals and other occasions.

Adding dill leaves to vada gives a different flavor to vada and makes it very unique. Dill leaves is called “sabakki soppu” or “sabigge soppu” in kannada. Here’s the recipe to how to make dill leaves channa dal fritters

Notes:-

I have not added rice flour to vada mxiture, adding vada mixture will make them crisp. It’s optional.

If you don’t want to use green chillies, replace green chillies with red chillies. Grind red chillies along with the channa dal mix.

Soaking channa dal for enough time is very important, it not soaked enough, vada’s may turn hard.

Frying vadas in right temperature is also very important, if oil is too hot vadas will brown fast and the inside will remain raw.
