Salt – to taste
Method: Wash and soak whole urad dhal and toor dhal in sufficient water for 6 hours. Later drain the water and grind the dhals with green chili and salt into a fine batter.
Heat oil in a kadai; add a small quantity of batter into the oil; the oil is ready for frying if the batter gets cooked and rises to the surface. Now gently drop small balls of the batter into the oil and fry on medium flame. Turn the balls over till they become golden brown in color on all sides. Remove from the oil and place them on tissue paper for excess oil to drain. You may be able to fry 5-10 balls at a time depending upon the size of the kadai you use. Repeat the process till you use up the entire batter. Keep the vadais aside.
