Channa Daal Wada

Channa Daal Wada , I ate it first time when I was undergoing training for my 1st Job and was posted in Chennai. The helpers used to serve lot of other things like Pongal, Idli ,Dosa, Sambhar, chutney, Wadas , tea, coffee and milk. A variety of items during breakfast which we could not even finish. Well, Beak fast should be served heavy and Indians truly believe in it.


1 cup Channa Daal
1 tsp ginger paste
1 green chili chopped
1 tsp coriander chopped
Salt to taste
Pinch of Hing
5-6 curry leaves

For Batter :
Soak Daal for 4 hours.
Take 1 tbsp channa daal and keep aside.
Drain water and grind coarsely without any water.
Add green chilies, ginger paste, salt , hing and curry leaves.
