Gram Dal - 3/4 cup
Red Gram ¼ cup
Urid dal 2 tsp

Green chillies - 2 finely chopped

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Onions - 1 diced

Tomatoes - 1 diced

Chilli powder - 1 tsp

Coriander powder - 1 tsp

Saunf - 1/4 tsp

Cloves - 2

Cinnamon stick - 2

Oil - 2 tbsp

Salt to taste

Soak gram dal, Red gram and Urid dal for a couple of hours.
Grind them to a very coarse mix adding the green chillies, salt (1/2 tsp) and saunf at the last grind cycle.
Make small disc shaped (vadas) balls and deep fry these in oil.
Set aside.
In a pan, heat oil, add in the cloves and cinnamon and fry for a minute.
Then add the onions and saute for a while.
Add tomatoes, turmeric powder, chilli and coriander powders along with a little water and allow to cook till the smell of raw spice disappears.
Then add the fried dal balls into the mix and allow to cook for a few minutes.

Usually served on the side for idlis, dosas. If you have any left over masala vadais, can use these instead to make the curry too.
