  3. grind daal by adding very less amount of water.
  4. take a bowl and add all the ingredients with batter.
  5. heat oil in kadhai take one spoon of hot oil and add it to the batter it will omit the use of baking soda.
  6. now wet your palm and take a lemon size batter in your palm and make it flat and circular with a whole in middle.
  7. safely slide it in oil and repeat for the same.
  8. flip occasionally till the colour become golden. Take out and your medu vada is ready.

If your batter is too much runny add few table spoon of rice flour it will make your vada batter consistent and crispy.
