Coconut Vada

Coconut Grated-1cup
Green chilli-6nos
Cinnamon-1inch piece
Roasted chana dhal flour-3tbsp
(putnala pappu,dalia,pottukadale)
salt to taste
Oil for deep-frying

My entry for JFI-Coconut
Method: Grind the roasted gram dhal into fine powder & keep aside.
Grind coconut, green chills, cinnamon, cardamom, &cloves to a thick paste just by sprinkling very little water.
Now add salt & the flour mix well. If the paste is watery add little more flour to hold it.
Heat oil in a kadai. Make small balls of the paste & press them lightly & deep fry on medium heat till golden brown.
(Note: Can use Bengal gram flour also & Thin vadas would be more crisper.)
