The One with Moong Poha Vadai

Hola Amigos,

Etymology : The name came after a funny conversation which we had :).
Origin : Nivi and Hari's commonly used sense! Gives you a hint of Masal vada

This is a very easy vadai recipe. I used to make this dish whenever my husband likes to eat vadai, as this dish does not include the grinding part .

This is what you want :
Poha  (Rice Flakes) - 1 cup
Moong Dal - 1/2 cup
Onion(big) -1(cut to small pieces)
Spinach - 1/4 cup( cut to small pieces)
Green chillies - 3-4
Ginger - 1 inch piece (cut to small pieces)
Salt - to taste
Oil - to fry

This is how you do : 
1. Soak Moong Dal in water for about 2 hours and Poha in water for about 1 hour.
2. Grind the Moong Dal into a coarse mixture (just a pulse in mixie ) and add into the Poha which is well soaked now.
3. Add the finely chopped onion,spinach,green chillies,ginger and salt and mix it well.
4. Heat oil in the kadai and shape the poha moong dal mixture like the masal vadai .
5. After the oil is hot ,just deep fry the patties
6. Simple but delicious Moong Poha Vada is ready !!!!!!!!!!!

1. This vadai tastes much more yummy with tomato chutney.
2. If the poha is light variety it will not require much time for soaking.
3. Dont add water when grinding Moong Dal . It is just a turn in the mixer or you can use spice blender to grind it into a coarse mixture without adding water.
