Parippu /Chana Dal Vada

Parippu Vada a common order  in a Chayakadda.I love the chayakadda seen in Malayalam movie and the talks there.Having lived my life outside Kerala the only way I used to connect with my roots is through movies.Vacations were short and sweet,with visits to relatives.To be true to you guys I and my brother would wait to be back to Mumbai cos we felt more free and we did miss our friends.
I started admiring the beauty of Kerala and Keralites after joining nursing.Learned proper Malayalam and many proverbs......Its after marriage I saw the proper Kerala.Now its come to a point when I often fight with my parents for deciding to settle in Mumbai that took me away from this place called Gods own country.And me...Guys I will be settling in Kerala.So pension aayi kazhinchettu onnu koodam..............





Now coming back to the recipe.
Ingredients;
Channa dal/Kadala parippu-2cups-soaked in water for 2 hours
Shallots-10,finely chopped
Green chillies-3,finely chopped
Curry leaves-10,finely chopped
Ginger-1/2inch,finely chopped
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying


Grind the dal to form a coarse dough.Do not add water.Now add the onion,chillies,curry leaves ,ginger and salt.Heat oil.Make balls of the dough ,flatten it and deep fry it on a madium flame until you get a golden colour.




Serve with banana and hot tea!!!!!!!
