My mother’s Masala vadai are simply delicious. They are very easy to make and do not consume much time. They are a perfect snack on a cold rainy day.


1 cup Bengal gram dal (washed and soaked in water for at least 8 hours)

½ tbsp garlic paste

½ tbsp ginger paste

1 tsp fennel seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp red chilli powder

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp asafoetida

Coriander leaves


Grind the Bengal gram dal into a fine paste, add all the other ingredients and mix well. Then heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat, take medium sized balls of the mixture and drop in the oil. Cook till they are golden brown in colour. Remove on a tissue paper and serve hot with tomato sauce. This recipe makes about 12 masala vadais.
