Soak the paruppu/dal in water for 30 to 45 minutes. Grind the Paruppu/dal along with green chillies, asafoetida, cumin powder and salt in wet grinder/blender adding a tablespoon of water , but do not add more water.The batter should be fluffy.Transfer the batter to a vessel and heat oil side by side, when the oil is heat enough, Wet your palms, take a ball of the urad dhal batter and make vadai as shown in the picture. Remove the deep fried vadais and drop them into a bowl of warm water and place them in it for about 10 seconds. Remove and gently press between slotted spoons/ jalli karandi to remove the excess water.
