veg vada recipe with step by step photos – crisp and tasty vadas made with chana dal and chopped mix veggies.

mix veg vada recipe

on occasions, i prepare this mix veg dal vada as an evening snack. this recipe is a delicious variation of the dal vada where mixed veggies are added. due to the addition of veggies, the vada have a soft texture from within, whereas the outside has a crisp texture.

few more similar indian snacks you can make at times are:

usually i add spare or leftover veggies from the fridge in the vadas. you can add your choice of veggies also. or you can just make the vada recipe with one veggie like cabbage or carrots.

as a variation you can also use half-half of chana dal and moong dal or the trio of chana dal, moong dal and urad dal. you can also make these veg vada with only moong dal or only chana dal. you can also add greens like spinach or amaranth in the vadas. so you can adapt this vada recipe as per your requirement and liking.

serve veg vada with tomato ketchup or coconut chutney or coriander chutney or mint chutney.

  1. firstly rinse and then soak ½ cup chana dal in enough water for 2 hours.

  2. then drain all the water and add the soaked chana dal in a grinder jar.

  3. without adding any water grind to a smooth paste. if you want you can grind to a semi coarse paste with some chana dal kept whole. but for this recipe i always grind till smooth. scrape the sides while grinding to get an evenly ground mixture. 

  4. if you are not able to grind, then you can add 1 to 2 teaspoons water or more if required. 

  5. do not add too much water as then you won't able to shape into vadas and then you will have to fry like pakoras.
