These vadas are made from Chickpeas instead of the regular channa dal. It makes them more nutritious and definitely more tasty.This one is from my mom's kitchen, being a working mother she was great at juggling work and home.We would wait for the weekends for she would spoil us with a lot of good food.These piping hot vadas with sambhar and chutneys were definitely special !
