Instructions

  1. For Vada : Clean and Soak chana dal for 2-3 hours. Drain the water completely

  3. Add all the other ingredients mentioned under vada to the dal and combine it gently.
  4. Heat oil in a deep pan for frying . Divide dal mix into equal portions. Wet your hands and flatten each ball within palms
  5. Drop vadas in hot oil and deep fry over low-medium heat, till it becomes crispy and a dark shade of brown. Drain the fried vadas on tissue paper
  6. Crush all the chai masala in mortar-pestle and keep it aside
  7. Bring water to boil , now add chai masala and boil for 2 minutes.Add tea leaves and boil for sometime depending on how strong you want the tea. Here I have made for 6 people hence the quantity is high
  8. Add sugar and milk. Let it boil for 2-3 minutes. Switch off. Strain the tea
  9. Serve the Vadas hot with steaming cup of Masala chai
