Aama vadai / Split chickpea fritters

This is a snack which I always enjoy with tea..I learnt this recipe from my grandma..In olden days people prepare this using ural..Nowadays it is prepared quickly using the mixie/blender..It contains channa dhall and hence rich in proteins too..Here is how I prepared this fritter..



Channa dhall/ split chickpea - 1 cup
Small sized onion - 1 finely chopped
Green chillies - 5 finely chopped
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Coriander leaves
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon stick - 1/ inch
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


Soak the channa dhall in water for at least three hours..Drain the water well and sperate 2 tablespoons of channa dhall and grind the remaining dhall coarsely in a mixie along with the cumin seeds and cinnamon..
To this mixture add the finely chopped onions, green chillies, curry leaves, coriander leaves and the seperated 2 tablespoons of channa dhall and mix well..Also add salt to taste..
Now take a spoon of this batter in your palm and press them slightly so that they form discs of about 2 inches in diameter..Deep fry them in oil on both sides until they turn golden brown..
Drain them in paper towels and serve them hot..
