Masal Vadai is made with dal and spices. It is very crispy and crunchy outside and soft inside. The Masal vadai is so flavorful with a burst of spices in every single bite. Though it is a very simple recipe, a lot of techniques need to be followed. It is important to get the texture of the batter right for a crispy vadai. This vadai is a best combo for venpongal and chutney or can be had a snack as such with a hot cup of tea. Enjoy this crispy masal vadai with your family.
I have used rice flour for the crispiness of the vadai. You can replace it with a teaspoon of soaked rice. Reserving a teaspoon of channa dal and adding to the grounded vadai batter gives a good texture. It is very important to pulse the channa dal instead of grinding it. It will give a crunchy and good texture.
