Ingredients For the Vadas

  • 1 cup Yellow moong dal (soaked)
  • 2 tablespoon Ginger (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon Green chilies (roughly chopped)
  • ¼ cup Onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Corinader seeds (crushed)
  • ½ tablespoon Black pepper (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon Carom seeds (crushed)
  • ½ teaspoon Red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 4 tablespoon Chickpea flour

Ingredients For the Green chutney

  • 1 bunch Coriander leaves
  • ½ cup Mint leaves
  • 10 pcs Garlic cloves
  • 5 pcs Green chilies
  • 2 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ pcs Lemon juice


  • Pre-heat the air fryer at 400°F for 5 minutes.
  • Soak the yellow moong dal for at least an hour.
  • Next, take the soaked moong dal, ginger and green chilies and blend into a smooth paste. Avoid adding any water. If the paste is too thick then just add a tiny amount of water.
  • Transfer the paste into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. The mixture should be thick enough to hold shape. If required, add more chickpea flour.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with oil. (Optional)
  • Make roundels of the mixture and transfer them to the air fryer basket. Make as many as you can.
  • Cook them at 350°F for 12-15 minutes or until the skin gets golden brown with textures.
  • Keep flipping them once or twice in between and brush some oil so that the skin gets heat evenly from all sides.
  • For the last 1 minute cook them at 400°F so that the exteriors of the vadas are crispy.
  • For the chutney, blend all the ingredients into a smooth paste.
  • Serve moong dal vadas hot with green chutney.
