Totakura-Ragi Vadalu

This is my 5th recipe for Blogging Marathon#6 group 2

Ragi flour ---- 1 cup
Rice flour ---- 1 tab sp
Totakura(amaranth leaves) --- 1/2 cup finely chopped
Coriander leaves ---- 1/4 cup finely chopped
Onion --- 1 medium finely chopped
Green chillis --- 3 finely chopped
Cumin seeds ----- 1 tea sp
Salt ---- 1/2 tea sp
Oil for deep frying
channa dal(split chick peas) --- 1/4 cup wash and soak for 1 hour
1. Take ragi flour, rice flour,chopped amaranth leaves, chopped coriander leaves,cumin seeds,Channa dal(drain the water crush in a blender),chopped onion,chopped green chillis,salt mix well to combine every thing.
2. Sprinkle 1 table spoon water and make a dough like puri dough. If you make a ball with this dough that should not break so add little water mix and see if require sprinkle some more water.Don't add too much water so take care other wise your vadas will drink oil when you fry them.
3.Heat oil in a deep frying pan.
4.Take a golf ball size dough and press it on a banana leaf in to rounds and make hole in the middle.
5. Drop this vadas in to hot oil fry in a high flame till vadas turn in to dark brown color.
Remove vadas from hot oil in to a kitchen towel.
Serve hot with coriander chutney or coconut chutney.
