Vadakari is my all-time-favourite. My mother used to prepare this dish atleast once a month and we used to rejoice it with idly, dosa and pongal too! I made it for first time and served it with mini-dosa (to come sooner) and my kid enjoyed it. Here, Chana dal, which was first soaked, is later blended with selective spices, steamed and mixed with regular onion-tomato gravy base. The spices usually added are red chilly and dhanya powder, here I added chana masala which blended soo well and gave an much richer aroma. Do try guys and let me know.
