Method:

Soak the Channa dal /kadalai parupu for about 5 to 6 hours . Take 1 tbsp of soaked dal & keep it aside .Now grind the rest of the dal along with Fennel seeds, garlic ,ginger, dry red chillies coarsely (without adding water). To this coarsely grinded paste add chopped onions , curry leaves , coriander leaves ,salt & 1 tbsp of soaked dal & mix all well together with hand .Heat oil for deep frying & make pattie shaped rounds ( like vada shape)with ur moist palm & drop carefully into the hot oil ( while dropping be careful with the hot oil ).
