Ugadi Greetings with Ugadi Festival Brunch 2013 | Moong Dal Vada

Ugadi Subhakankshalu!  Happy Ugadi to all my readers!

We had the usual Ugadi festival dishes and had a wonderful brunch. Apart from the regular and customary dishes, we also made Moong Dal Vada. After the heavy brunch I was not game for anything, though I had planned on making something for the BM.

Moong Dal Vada

This was almost the same as the usual one I make with Moong dal, only difference was, this had the skin intact.

Ingredients Needed:

Whole Moong dal - 1 cup
Green Chilies - 3 long
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry.

How to make Moong Dal Vada:

Wash and soak Moong dal for an hour. Grind to an almost coarse paste along with green chilies and salt without adding much water.

Heat a kadai with oil for deep fry. Pat down the batter into small discs and deep fry in oil

This made a delicious snack along with the Dal and Chitrannam.
