Moodu Pappula Vada - 3 Dal Vada

I am here with another Blogging Marathon. This month BM will be in a different way. We are doing three days a week and for four weeks, with different themes. So this will be more interesting. I am doing for four weeks with different themes. For first week my theme is Deep fried Vada fitters.
This recipe is new to me too. When I was doing my Indian thali theme last month , i decided to do  a Hyderadadi thali. I discussed about the recipes and snacks what they serve on the festival time with my neighbour who is from Hyderabad. She gave me this recipe, Some other  two recipes too will post them also soon. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe Priyanka
Here is the recipe for 3 dal vada:---
3 pappula vada INGREDIENTS:--
Split Moong dal  --- 1/2 cup
Split urad dal  --- 1/2 cup
Channa dal  --- 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds  --- 1 tea sp
Onion  -- 1 big chopped
Green chillies --- 3 chopped
Ginger  --- 1 inch piece chopped
Coriander leaves  -- 1 tab sp chopped
Oil for deep frying
Rice flour  --- 1 tab (optional)
1. wash and soak moong dal, urad dal, channa dal in water for three to four hours.
2. Grind this three dal in to a coarse paste like masala vada paste. Don't add much water if you feel that you added over water then add a tab sp of rice flour to reduce the moisture in the batter.
3 Add chopped onion, green chillies, ginger, coriander leaves, cuminseeds, salt to taste mix well to combine every thing.
4. Heat oil in a deep frying pan, Take a small portion of dal mixture, place it on a plantainleaf or on your other hand and press it in to a small circle, make ahole with your finger on the center of the dal circle.
5. Drop this three dal vada in to hot oil and deep fry in amediun heat both sides till golden. remove from oil and drain the oil well.
