One of the place where I dont forget to eat it is on Baroda Railway Station. This is our not to miss order whenever our train passes through Baroda Station. The wadas are served with Green Chillis and trust me this is matach made in heaven.
Moong Daal wada is prepared in different parts of India with different names and recipes. This recipe is inspired by my Grandpa.

This wada is packed with full of protien to quickly fill your tummy.

Soaking Time: 4-5 hours
Yield: 12-14 Wadas
2 cupsSplit Yellow lentils, (moong daal) (मूंग दाल)
4 tbsp uncooked Rice (चावल)
1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander (हरा धनिया)
1/2 inch ginger (अदरक)
4-5Green Chillies (हरी मिर्च)
a pinch of baking soda (खाने का सोडा)
oil, to fry (तेल)
salt to taste, (नमक)
1. Soak Moong Daal and Rice in a bowl with warm water for at least 4-5 hours.
Grind to Paste:
1. Green Chillies, Ginger, Coriander leaves
2. Coarsely Grind Soaked Moong Daal and Rice.
Method to prepare:
1. Mix both the above paste. (Refer our video to see how coarse Moong Daal mixture should be. It should have same consistency for crispier wadas)
2. Make round flat balls with your hands and fry till light brown.
3. Fry second time by flattening Wadas with your palms or small katori. Flattening wadas will make it more crispier.
4. Serve hot with Fresh Green Chillies. I prefer spiciest one and Tea.
