This Vadai/Vada contains all the dals and sweet corn so Kids will love this healthy snack.

My MIL prepared this vadai with Channa dal, and we all loved the vadais and could never guess that it was made with out onions. I tried the same recipe with mixed dals and it turned out to be a great evening snack. Thes vadais goes well with Tomato ketchup and Hot tea.

Ingredients: Serves 7-8 vadais
  • 2 tbsp Channa dal
  • 2 tbsp  Toor dal
  • 2 tbsp Urad dal
  • 2 tbsp  Masoor dal
  • 2 tbsp Moong dal
  • 1/2 Sweet corn cob
  • 1/4 cup Cabbage (Finley chopped)
  • 2 Red chillies
  • 1 Green chilli (Finely chopped)
  • 1/2 inch length Ginger (Skin peeled and finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp Hing
  • A spring Curry leaves (Finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp Coriander leaves (Finely chopped) 
  • As per taste Salt
  • For Frying Oil


1) Wash and soak the dals for 1 hour. Meantime steam the Sweet corn cob till soft and set aside to cool down. After it cools, scrap off the corn kernels using a knife.

2) Now drain water from dals and set aside. Take a mixer and first grind the red chillies to coarse mixture. Next add the dals and give 1 or 2 pulse to get coarse mixture. No need to add water and also don't grind to smooth paste.
