Baked Vada

Second last post in the series of this baking marathon. 

I saw this baked version of vadas during this baking marathon and tried it on vishu day. This is a very good guilt free version of vadas. In my house everyone thought this to be another version of cookies by the looks before tasting it.


Channa dal - 1 cup
onions - 2 medium
green chillies - 3 nos
ginger - 1 small piece
salt - to taste
saunf - 1/2 tsp
jeera - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves - few finely chopped


Soak the channa dal in enough water for about an hour.
Drain the water and grind the channa dal alongwith onions, green chillies and ginger. Grind into a coarse paste, do not add water.
To the ground paste add salt and the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Grease a baking tray with little oil.
Preheat the oven at 180 degree celsius for 10 minutes.
Make small patties of the ground mixture and line them in the baking tray.
Brush the top side of the vadas with oil.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Take the vadas out of the oven, flip them, brush with oil and bake again for 15 minutes.
Take the vadas out of the oven and cool them for 10 minutes.

Crispy vadas are ready!!!
