5. if big banana then 1/4 banana


1.  Take wheat flour in bowl to it soda salt,  mashed banana, and then sugar.

3.  Heat the oil in kadai and using spoon take the batter and pour in oil. It will puff. Deep fry  and then take out.

Paruppu Vadai /Aama vadai is basically a dish of Tamilnadu origin which is usually made during family feasts and is served as a starter.   Most of the lunch menu for special occasions will include this Paruppu vada and Payasam.  It is a fast and easy mouth watering appetizer which can be made in minutes.   Advantage of this recipe is that you need not search for much of ingredients in your pantry and fridge.  Since the outer  layer of  masala vada is very crispy  it can be eaten as  tea time  snack.


Paruppu vadai



1. Channa dal  –  1 cup
2. Ani seeds/Sombu  -  1 tsp
3. Ginger  -  very little
4. Green chilles  - 4
5. Onion -1
5. Salt
6. Curry leaves
7. Corriander leaves
8. Oil for frying


1.  Soak channa dal in water for 2 hours.  Drain and keep aside a fistful of drained channa dal (optional) and grind the rest of the channa dal with sombu/ani seeds coarsely.
2.  To this coarse mixture add chopped onions, curry leaves, coriander leaves, chopped green chillies, finely chopped ginger and salt.
3.  Add the remaining channa dal (optional) and mix well.   Make small lemon-sized balls and pat it lightly on your palm  and slide into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown.

To Make Keerai Vadai/Greens vada

You can add chooped spinach along with corase grinded dal.   Or you can add Drumstick greens (Murunga keerai) – It will taste good
