Masala / Paruppu Vada( Vade/Vadai)

Yellow split peas - 1 cup
( this is not channa dhal..but called as battaani pappu/paruppu)
Toor dhal - 1 tbsp
Onion - handful chopped fine
Garlic - 3 pods
Red chillies - 2 or 3
Fennel seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Curry leaves - few broken
Cilantro - few chopped
Salt as needed
Oil for deep frying

Wash and soak dhals together for 2 hours...drain water completely and grind in a mixer in small batches...just add and turn on the mixer for few seconds only..this should not be ground to a fine paste...but coarsely and few dhal should be seen wholly. Transfer everything in a mixing bowl and to it add chopped onions, curry leaves, fennel seeds and salt ...if needed the variations( spinach or dill leaves)..crush coarsely red chillies and garlic pods and add ...mix well and take small balls and flatten with finger tips...

heat oil in a kadai and transfer the flattened balls one by one...cook both sides by turning till they are brown.
