Whether it is summer or winter or somewhere in between, 'fried something' with evening tea is always welcome. Vada, for instance, is a popular choice when it comes to snacks or light meals. Medu vada, batata vada, sabudana vada, just any kind of vada tastes great with tea or even with other foods like chutney, sambhar, buns etc. This gobhi dal vada is bound to impress you the same way. This unique vada is made with a winning combination of cauliflower and chana dal (lentil). Cauliflower is grated which lends its mushy and soft texture, while chana dal adds in loads of crunch to it. And let's not forget the high protein content that we will be taking in.
This gobhi dal vada also includes rice flour, which helps make the vada turn out to be crispy. A variety of flavours from gobhi and dal, lip-smacking heat from green chillies and other spices - all packed into one crunchy bite. Do we need anything else to whet our evening hunger? And if you'll add some green mint chutney to your plate, you'll love it even more.
In this recipe, we'll use some few, very common spices like ginger, garlic, green chillies, cumin powder etc. You can experiment with whole spices like cinnamon, cardamom and cloves also. Do try this recipe if you are a fan of crispy fired snacks. Your whole family will love it and so will your guests if you serve it to them as an appetiser.
