Dal Vada

Its been a lovely weather since past two days because of non-stop heavy rains. This called for some tasty fried snacks. So, yesterday, I thought of making something different instead of the regular ‘Kanda Bhaji’. For this, after lunch, I soaked some Chana dal and made a nice fried snack with evening tea – Dal vada.
