  • Summary

    The vada is a generic type of snack from South India and this one looks like a doughnut where the hole is a defining feature. It's made by soaking split urid lentils and spicing them up with cumin and fresh green chillies. These should be lovely and soft inside and crisp on the outside, so make sure the batter is the right consistency. Top tip - don't let the batter sit around cook these straight away.

    Ingredients

    • 250g split urid dhal, soaked for 2 hours
    • 1 tsp black peppercorns
    • 1 tsp cumin seeds
    • 1 onion, chopped roughly
    • 2 green chillies
    • 1 tsp salt
    • Rapeseed oil to deep fry
