The vada is made from a combination of urad dal and channa dal. The dals are soaked in water for some time so that it becomes soft and can be ground into a batter. To this mixture we have added oats and vegetables to make it a rich and filling snack. The vada is then shallow fried in a kuzhi paniyaram pan.
The onions and fennel seeds are roasted well till it becomes golden brown and then ground into a smooth creamy paste which is then simmered with black eyed beans and drumstick.
