I feel great to take participate in Blogging Marathon event hosted by Srivalli on Spicing up your life.

Blogging Marathon is an event which is celebrated last two weeks in a month which comes up with some group events. Instead of just blogging it’s an important rule to pass comments in the group on other posts. So Srivalli had made a group in google called as blogging marathon. In this way the communication develops not only between food bloggers but also in the house to find the different recipes related to the group selected. To prepare a dish there might be more than one variety of making it for example check out my versions (1st - gojju mix with rice, 2nd - without gojju) of tomato rice.

I have selected the concept of Seven Days of Delicious Dals. Today is my 1st day, I am posting “aamvada” a vada made from Channa Dal. In my family all of us love to eat vadas, and this is one of them.

Channa Dal – 100 gms
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Coriander leaves – few
Green Chillies (small sized which will be more spicy) – 3 to 4
Salt – to taste
Oil for deep frying

Soak channa dal atleast for 3 hours
Remove the water and grind it along with baking soda, green chillies with little water as the consistency should be thick
Add salt and coriander leaves and mix well
Leave the oil to become hot
Make small dough from the hand and make it like a plate drop it in hot oil
Leave it to fry until the color becomes reddish brown
Turn to the other side and leave it to fry
Remove it from the Stove and put it on to vessel which has pores (a vessel which removes extra oil)
Serve it hot with chutney
