Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Soak both the dal in water for 3-4 hours. Drain the water and grind the dal in a blender, add little water and make a smooth paste. Add the baking soda and salt into the dal paste and mix well till the batter is light and fluffy. Do not add water. Heat the oil in a frying pan and place 1 tablespoon of batter into the hot oil. Deep fry vada on medium flame till the vadas are golden brown and keep aside for 15 minutes.

Soak the deep fried vadas in water for about 30 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water in to the vadas.
Serve with whisk thick curd, khajur imli chutney, coriander chutney, red chilli powder,  roasted cumin seeds powder, black pepper powder, chaat masala, salt to taste and garnish with chopped coriander  and masala peanuts.

Note: If you want cool vadas ,put the vadas in whisked curds and make a cool in fridge for at least one hour, personally I preferred cool vadas….
