One of my neighbour, gave me new recipe ideas for the blog and she only suggested this poha vada. These vadas came out real crispy than I expected. A quick and yummy evening snack for the kids :)
1 cup poha(thin/thick)
1/2 cup besan-Chick pea flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1/8 tsp ground garam masala
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
3 to 4 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
few curry leaves chopped
1 medium size onion finely chopped
2 to 3 green chillies finely chopped
salt(as per taste)
Oil(for deep frying)
1.Soak poha in water until soft. Drain and add the other ingredients except oil and mix well. No need to add water, the moisture in the onion and the soaked poha is enough to form a vada shape.
2.Make equal sized balls and flatten.
3.Heat a pan with oil and once it is piping hot, drop vadas at low medium flame and fry until golden brown on both sides.Remove and drain in the paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
4.Serve it hot with your favorite dip. I served it with my favorite sriracha hot sauce.
