2 in 1 vada | Dal fritters | Paruppu vadai

I should say accidents become blog posts. I wanted to make some evening snacks for kids after soaking about few tablespoons of urad dal i found out i didn't have any more of it, so i soaked channa dal for a few hours then i ground it like our regular parupu vada it turned out super fluffy and the kids loved it.


These are a really quick snack to make.If it weren't for lack of planning, i would've never tried this combination.




Preparation time : 15 minutes + soaking time 2 hours
Makes around 15-20 vadas depending on the size you make

You need

Channa dal/kadala paruppu 3/4th cup
Urad dal/ulundhu 3 tablespoons
Onion small 1
Ginger 1/2 inch piece
Green chilli 1 medium
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds 1/4 tsp

Oil to deep fry


  • Soak the dals together for about 1-2 hours. 
  • Drain the water after it soaks, and grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Grind or chop finely green chilli, onion, curry leaves and ginger and add it to the ground dal mixture.Add salt and mix well.add the cumin seeds.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai/wok, once hot, if the mixture is too wet or liquidy use a small spoon to drop small portions into the oil.If its thick you may shape them like doughnuts with a hole in between like the traditional ulundhu vadai.
  • Fry until golden brown, drain on paper towels.
  • Serve hot with sauce or chutney.






 Enjoy hot fluffy vadais and watch how kids devour them.
