I prepare paruppu vadai earlier, without onion. I have been preparing green gram sprouts almost daily for my parents in the diet, so have stock of it. Prepared this for lunch for my friend and her mom.
Greengram Sprouts - 2 cups(click here for how to make sprouts)
Kadalai Paruppu /Channa Dal - 1 cup
Onion - 2 nos chopped
Curry leaves - few chopped
Coriander leaves - few chopped
Dry Red chilli - 2nos(as per your taste)(Can also use green chilli)
Ginger - 1" piece
Oil for Deep frying
Soak kadalai paruppu for 2hrs in water.
In a mixie, add sprouted green gram, channa dal, ginger, dry red chilli and grind it coarsely without water. If required just add little water.
Transfer it to a wide vessel, add thinly chopped onion, curry leaves, coriander leaves, salt and mix well.
Take lemon size balls and slowly flatten on hand.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Drop slowly in oil and deep fry both sides till golden brown in medium flame.
Crispy Sprouts vadai is ready to serve.
Enjoy hot vadai with coffee/tea as it is or with coconut chutney.
This can be had with sambar rice, rasam rice or any variety rice.
Notes - You can store the balance dough in the fridge and use later.
