To begin with, wash and rinse green moong dal properly. Meanwhile, chop onion, coriander leaves and keep aside.
Now grind 2 tbsp of soaked dal with ginger, garlic, green chillies and cinnamon into a fine paste.
Drain the leftover dal and mix it into the paste to make a thick and coarse batter without adding water.
Mix the batter uniformly with a spatula and, if required, run the mixer for a few more seconds. Note: It's okay if part of the dal remains uncrushed.
In a bowl, scoop out the dal mixture and add in the salt, cumin seeds, chopped coriander leaves, and onion. Heat oil in a kadhai.
Form a tiny ball of batter and flatten it on your palm into a vada before slipping it into the heated oil.
Cook until the vadas become golden brown in colour.
Once done, take them out and and drain them on a paper towel. Green moong dal vada is ready!
