About Himachali Sepu Vadi Recipe

These are fried lentil dumplings made of soaked and ground urad dal (split black gram lentil). Few aromatic ground spices are added to it to impart more flavour. They are first steamed, cut into desired shapes and then deep fried. I like having them just as it is or make into delicious chaat for an evening snack.
