Urad dal vada

1 cup Urad Daal
Handful of Curry leaves chopped
1 Onion sliced
1 tsp grated Ginger
1 - 2 Green Chilies chopped
cumin seeds- 1tsp
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Soda
1tbslp coriander leaves chopped
oil for frying

Wash and soak Urad Dal for 4-5 hours.
Make a smooth paste of the dal by grinding it . Do not add too much water, because it should be a thick paste.
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 more soft & fluffy. Add  sliced onions, grated ginger, chopped green chilies ,salt,curry leaves , cumin seeds, coriander leaves and soda to the paste & mix well. set aside.

Heat oil in a kadhai . 
Apply some water in your palms & fingers or u can use a plastic sheet, take a small amount of batter and flatten it with your fingers with a little hole in the middle. 

Take that from it and fry it until golden brown.

serve hot with chutney, samber or guguni...
