Protein packed healthy vadas

Diet protein packed vada with rasam 
My quest for healthier options for all the calorie rich foods never stops me from experimenting in my little kitchen. I saw this donut maker and I wanted to make my all time favorite ... Rasam vada without those extra calories. Today I tried mixed daals and they were passed by full marks by my friends and family. Sharing this goodness on my blog. 
1/2 cup red masoor
1/4 cup Chana dal
1/4 cup tuar
1/4 cup urad
1/4 cup quinoa 
1/4 cup dalia
1/4 cup rice
1 tbsp ginger
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp cumin 
1/6 tsp Hing
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp baking powder
2-3 tbsp curd
1 chopped onion
Salt to taste
Soak all the grains for about 2-3 hours.
Grind them with green chillies and ginger .You can also add them chopped instead. Add curd to grind. Keep the batter thick. 
Add oil , onions, spices and baking powder and mix well.
Heat donut maker. Apply butter on both sides. 

Pour spoon fulls into each slot.
Close the griddle and cook for about 5-7 mins. 
Serve them hot with steaming rasam or chutney! 
Delicious and healthy !!

  1. Hello there Rouchi

    You have a great blog with some great recipes and a great story. I am reaching out to you from a social platform for Indian/Desi food lovers. It is a community of About 400 food bloggers with thousands of recipes and counting. You might find some fellow bloggers from India and abroad as well on our platform. It is developed by someone like you who is a Indian mom/wife/daughter who is passionate about technology and in need of new recipes. This platform is aimed at addressing the love for Indian food by creating:

    > A one stop shop for all Indian food related information.
    > Create a democratic platform for home cooks to get noticed, appreciated and rewarded.
    > Share the creative ways people are exploring Indian food - In fact going by number of Indian food blogs it’s quite evident that the real fun in Indian food is happening in the kitchens of Indian homes and not in star restaurants & cooking schools. Therefore, we also want this to be a platform for home cooks to get together and share ideas.

    The current services are just a beginning and we will be adding additional functionalities that will truly make this a global platform for Indian food.
