as i mentioned previously, the recipe steps are extremely simple, yet some tips and serving suggestion for moong dal vada recipe. firstly, while grounding make sure to add very less water to make it smooth thick paste. the consistency of batter is very critical, otherwise while deep frying it may absorb more oil. secondly, adding finely chopped onions or green chillies are completely optional and hence can be skipped. lastly, the left over grounded batter can be refrigerated after the first batch is prepared. note that refrigerating the batter helps to cut the fermentation and turning it to sour in taste.
