  • Fennel seeds - 1/2 tbsp
  • Besan powder - a few tbsp (optional)
  • Curry leaves - a few leaves - chopped fine
  • Cilantro - a small bunch - chopped fine
  • Salt to taste
The preparation method :
  • Grind the Chana Dal,  in a blender or a food processor without adding water. Don’t grind them into a paste. Grind them coarsely.
  • Wash aval in water and keep aside.
  • Take chana daal and aval in a vessel.Finally add the ingredients (Red onions, green chillies, ginger, sweet cumin, salt,cilantro,curry leaves and hing). Mix them together.Add rice powder if the consistency of the batter is not thick.
  • Make a round shape with your hands running through the edges. You could also apply some oil in a plastic paper and make the shape of vada.Drop the vada into the oil. Deep fry them in hot oil until they are golden brown.
  • Hot and spicy Aval vada is ready to served with chutney or sambhar. It is good enough on its own too.
