Parippu / Toor Dal Vada / Snacks Recipe

Parippu vada is a popular tea time snacks recipe in south India. Usually they made with adding ginger; I am not adding ginger in this parippu vada, because I don’t like the flavor of ginger. If you wish you can add ginger or garlic as per your taste. For making this, you can use chana dal also. This is one of my and daughter’s favorite snack.  This is very simple to make and very tasty with sulaimani.

Let’s see the making bellow with detailed videos and step by step images. I hope all are enjoy this simple recipe with yummy recipes.
