Wash and soak the moong dal and urad dal for 3-4 hours and grind to a fine paste. Beat the batter very well till light and fluffy. Add the salt, ginger paste, green chilly and coriander leaves in the batter. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Make equal size balls and deep fry it in hot oil until golden in color. Simmer it after we put all the vadas and cook in a medium flame until done. Now take out the vadas once done into a bowl of water and let them soak for 10 minutes. Now press the vadas so that excess water is out.
