About Parippu Vada/ Dal Fritters Recipe

Chaya in those cutting glass( aka chai aka tea )without parippu vada, you tell that and you could be looked upon as an alien. This combination of vada and chai can never go wrong in any corner of the state. This common chaya kada palahaaram (snacks at any tea shop) from Kerala once ruled all households during evenings when children were back from school for snacks. The trend slowly disappeared with conscious eating and now is termed a junk food. That reminds me of mom, making them way back in the 80's and 90's whenever she could find some time.Nevertheless my love for these fritters would never cease how ever health conscious I tend to be. There's nothing that can replace them. And now that we have a simply south contest , felt this was the perfect snack recipe to go along with the theme.
