Special Ambode/masala vada


Ambode was in cooking list since long time,so thought of sharing with you all.
Something special about these Ambode is for a unique taste I added a teaspoon of green chilli sauce & soya suce with the regular ingredients,a medium spicy and tangy flavor.

Ingredients:
Chana dal:1 cup
Green chillies: 3or 4 according to taste
Red Chillie pwd : 1/2 tp
Onions finely chopped: 1
Jeera: 1tsp
Hing: 2 tsp or size of a pea
Curry leaves: few
Coriander leaves: 2 tbsp.
Grated fresh coconut: 2 tbsp.
Green Chilli sauce(optional) 1 tsp & Soya sauce(1/8 tsp,optional)
Salt
Rice flour 2 tsps( for crispness)
Oil for deep fry

Method:

Wash and soak the chanadal for at least 4 to 5 hours. Drain the soaked chanadal to remove excess water and grind coarsely with green chillie,coriander,coconut powder etc. Later add rice flour to the grinded paste.Transfer to a bowl and mix finely cut onion mix well.
Make small balls and pat them gently into flat shape.. Heat oil in a pan.. Take the prepared balls and slide into the hot oil, one by one. Flip the ambodes in the oil, so that both sides get cooked evenly. Remove from oil, when both sides are cooked, spread them on to a paper towel to remove excess oil and serve the crispy Ambode with any varieties of chutney.
