Tiny Black eye peas vadas..:)

Ingredients to make vada :
2 cups black eyed peas
3  green chillies chopped
1 inch ginger (chopped to pieces)
1 Onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup yellow channa dal soaked
Salt to taste
1 tea spoon jeera
few curry leaves
chopped mint leaves- 1tblsp
Oil for deep fry
A pinch of asafoetida

Soak 2 cups of black-eyed peas in water for overnight. Drain all the water.

Grind the blackeye peas &  ginger into coarse batter in a  mixer without adding water. The batter must be solid. So do not add water while grinding the peas.
How to know whether the vada dough is perfect or not. Take  1 large glass of water in a pan. Take a lttle vada mixture & drop it in the water. If the dough floats in the water then u ll kno that your batter is ready.
Beat the dough in your hand to make the vada soft & fluffy

Remove it into a bowl and add chopped onion chopped chillies, yellow soaked channa dal, chopped mint and green chillies and asafoetida and salt..

Remove the batter to a vessel. You can use your hands or small cotton cloth to make vadas. Take small amount of batter in a ball shape, put that ball on your left palm and flatten it lightly. Drop gently into hot oil from the side of kadai .
In batches, deep fry them in hot oil, turning them until they are golden-brown on both sides. Serve it with Chilli Sauce or Ketchup.
