How to make Whole Moong Dal Vada Recipe
To begin making the Whole Moong Dal Vada Recipe, soak the moong and channa dal in warm water in a bowl for at least 5 to 6 hours or overnight.
Once the dal has soaked well, drain the water and grind the dal using very little water to make a coarse thick vada batter.
Transfer the Whole Moong Dal Vada batter to a mixing bowl. Add chopped onions, chilies, ginger-garlic paste, asafoetida and salt to taste. Mix well everything and allow it rest for 10 minutes.
Heat oil for deep frying in a deep frying pan. Once oil is hot, make small balls of the Moong Dal Vada batter and drop in hot oil carefully. Deep fry the vadas till it turns golden brown and crispy on medium heat.
Once done, drain the excess oil using absorbent paper and serve warm.
