Masal Vadai – Paruppu Vadai – Masala Vadai

January 31, 2017 Diwali SnacksNavaratri SpecialSnacks / Starters  5 comments

Masal Vadai is a popular South Indian tea time snack. It is very commonly available in the local tea shops there. I should say it smell’s divine if u happen to be near a tea shop when they make it. It is perfect on a rainy day with a hot cup of coffee or tea. It’s also called Paruppu Vadai. Usually some people do not prefer to add fennel seeds. U can skip it if u don’t want.. The only planning u need to do is the soaking of chana dal. If that is done the rest of the process can be done in 15-20 mins.

Now to the recipe...
