Masala Vada is a very popular deep fried crispy South Indian (especially Andhra) snack. Masala Vada literally means a "spice mixed savory fritter". They are usually had with evening tea or can be had with a bit of chutney or sauce., If you were raised drinking Indian coffee or tea, a snack like masala Vada might have no complement. You just can't give up eating only one. It's an easy recipe and you can also merge some veggies and have much more rejuvenating.

Masala Vada, a standard Indian native snack and appetizer -is the component of surprise from the crispy outside and also the tastes that burst open out after you have a bite. There are lots of versions to it.   It is made of Chana dal / Chana dal, onion, green chilies, cilantro leaves, curry leaves and few others seasonings. These vadas when had hot are just yummy and delicious in taste.

Masala Vada is generally made out of Chana Dal (Bengal gram lentil) along with other spices. The dal must soak not less than 4 hours. So somewhat planning in advance is required. You can also try out replacing the dal with gram flour. The crispy snack is an effective choice when you are planning to charm your guests by using a multi-course meal. It is a simple recipe, still tastes incredible when done properly.

Masala Vada is an Andhra special street food and appetizer, usually offered at Railway Platforms; they're crispy exterior but soft inside. They're ideal when offered together with chutney plus some hot tea. Having Masala Vada with tea on the rainy day is real happiness.

Vada's delightful taste and strong fragrance exposed to excellence across the centuries, stimulate and emphasize the subtlest nuances of taste. Its gritty, glorious texture have been valued for being addicting by nature and mild on the tongue.

You will find wide range of variations of Vada in South India, and masala Vada is among the most in-demand. Masala Vada is also known as Aamai Vadai in Tamil because of its similarity to a tortoise. Other names contain Paruppu Vadai (Tamil), Masala Vade (Kannada), and Parippu Vada (Malayalam).

Preparation of Masala Vada:

 Soak chana dal in water for around 4 hours. Strain dal to take out water. Dry up the dal until wetness gets dried. This makes all the masala vadas appropriate plus they soak up not much of oil in which they are fried. Add cinnamon, dry red chilies, cumin seed and chana dal. Process all the ingredients till they form a rough blend. Do not grind too smooth. If needed you can include fistful of besan, mix well. Rough feel and intact chana dal are definitely the two important factors in a unique Vada experience. With your hand, shape the mix into 1 or 2 inches around patties of around half-inch thickness. Lightly add some vadas to hot oil and fry to golden color in batches. That is standard technique. On the other hand, fry the vadas on the lightly oiled frying pan till they're lightly browned on both sides.

I´ve been waiting for this recipe for a life time. My mum used to make this every now and again for tea in an Indian home in Malaysia. We would wake from an afternoon nap after school to hot tea and vada. Thank you.
