Since I had only a cup of horsegram ,I added some chana dhal.Otherwise the recipe is the same.It was yummy with lunch and luckily I had some dhal mixture left so we had a few vadais with our evening tea as well.Crispy Vadais and piping hot cup of tea on a cold and lazy Sunday evening is absolute bliss,don't you agree!
