  • Remove the chana dal from water and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • Coarsely Grind Cinnamon sticks,Green chilly, Cumin seeds,curry leaves and chana Dala into a grinder. 

Note 1: Do not add water while grinding. The mixture should be dry
Note 2: Do not grind the chana dal to make it a smooth paste,Some amount of chana dal should be visible,

  • Take the mixture into a bowl and give it a mix. Now add Coriander Leaves,Salt,Red chilly Powder,chopped onions, Besan and mix well.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan.
  • Take small dumplings out of the dal mixture and flatten them in between your palms

  • Drop the vada into the hot oil and deep fry on a medium heat till the vada becomes  golden color and crispy.
  • Take out in a kitchen towel and serve hot with chutney of your choice.
