Don’t add water while grinding for paruppu vadai, it ooze out the water at the time of grinding how much it absorbed during the time of soaking. You can grind it little coarsely.

Keep away little quantity of Bengal gram dal after soak it out, add that later to the grinded mixture, it gives better texture and taste to the Aamaa Vadai. To make Urundai vadai use the same tips as like paruppu vadai, but no need to keep the Bengal gram, especially you can grind the mixture finely for this preparation. Give much attention on the temperature of the hot oil.
Asafoetida, Greenchillies, Coriander leaves, Curryleaves, Jeera, Bellari Onion, Peppercorns, Saunf are the common ingredients using for each vadais, that adds nourishing and special taste.
