Leftover Dal Vada



I came to know about this "Vada"  by a very dear friend of mine which she makes it with leftover dal. 
Fortunately, today I found one bowl of leftover dal was sitting in my fridge.  A thought of trying those Vadas came to my mind. It was definitely a wonderful way to use leftover dal. I tried it and they came out very well. Nobody was able to  judge that they were vadas of leftover dal of last night. I served these Vadas as evening snack with tea and we all enjoyed a lot  ..... 


Ingredients
*   Any leftover dal          1 bowl
*   Bread slices                 3 to 4  (broken into small pieces)
*   Finely chopped onion  1
*   Green chilly chopped   1-2
*   Chaat masala               1/2 tsp
*   Coriander leaves          2 to 3 tsp (chopped)
*   Salt                              as per taste
*   Red chilli powder         1/2 tsp
*   Oil                               for deep frying

Method
*   In a mixing bowl take leftover dal.  Add in the pieces of bread slices.
*   Add chopped onion, Green chilly and coriander leaves, salt, red chilli powder and mix very well.
*   Make small balls from this mixture. Flatten them slightly and shape into vadas.
*   Heat oil in a deep bottom pan.
*   Gently drop the vadas to the hot oil, fry until vadas turned golden brown in color.

  6. Dear Deeksha
    I just landed here from another blog friend's site. This is some recipe,I was looking for!!! What do I do with a dal, not consumed in two sittings!! This has been a major headache for decades. I am going to use this recipe in your way. But the problem is , most bong dals are pretty thin and we like it. I shall find a way out by concentrating the left over
    let me see what great recipes you have here. I am following you, including the Hindi one...
    Have a nice day
