How To Make Poha Moong Vada

  • Blend the soaked moong dal into blender without adding water. Make a soft paste from it. Remove it into a bowl.
  • Now add spinach, green chilies, salt, soaked poha, cilantro, and sugar. Mix them thoroughly.
  • Make small balls from the mixture.
  • Now heat oil into a deep frying pan. Put these small balls into the oil and fry them until their color changes to golden brown and they become crisp.
  • Now drain all the fried Vada over a tissue paper so that extra oil would extract out from the Vada. Leave them for some time for their crunchiness.
  • Serve them along with mint chutney or ketchup.
