Hubby comes home at 4pm,the snack time and its become a challenge for me to stop him from opening the fridge for chocolates or wafers ,all the while i am slogging in the kitchen with some experiment,Yesterday it was raining here and i made these pesaravadalu after talking to mom on phone.

How to make it......
1 small glass split moongdaal soaked in water for about 5hrs with a tablespoon of rice.
1 onion cut into small pieces

Pudina and cilantro

salt to taste

ginger and green chillies

Grind the moongdaal into coarse batter along with a piece of ginger and 3 to 4 green chillies, when you put it into mixer,use the ripper button for a sec and take out a part of coarse daal and grind the rest of the daal smoothly, mix both later and result you have a coarse daal,remember not to add water while grinding the daal,add cut onions and pudina and cilantro along with a tea spoon of garammasala and salt. Make small size vadas on your hand and leave them into a hot pan of oil, fry them till brown and result is what you see here:)

And hubby finished them in a few min when presented with onions and lemon:) they taste good when hot,but if you keep them for a longer time they become soggy,happy munching all of you:)
