As we await the arrival of the monsoon to cool us down, make a batch of Sunita Harisinghani's crispy Dal Vadas that can be served with tea or as side dish to a larger meal.

Serve with green coriander chutney or coconut chutney.

Sunita cooks a wide variety of dishes from her native Mangalore and also has an enormous repertoire of Sindhi specialties.

Dal Vada

Servings: 13-15 pieces



Editor's Note: For Jain Dal Wadas, skip the onions and replace the ginger with 1 tsp of saunth or ginger powder.

Instead of carom seeds you might like to experiment with using an equivalent amount of sonf or fennel seeds instead.
