Dali Bada(ବୁଟ ଡାଲି ବଡା)  – Odia Breakfast item !!


  •  200gram Split Bengal Gram, soaked in water for about 3 to 4 hours(ବୁଟ ଡାଲି)
  • 1 finely chopped onion (ପିଆଜ)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic chopped finely(ରସୁଣ)
  • 2-3 finely chopped green chili(କଞ୍ଚା ଲଙ୍କା)
  • 2-3 curry leaves finely chopped(ଭୁର୍ସୁଙ୍ଗା ପତ୍ର)
  • Salt as per taste(ଲୁଣ)
  • Oil for deep fry (ତେଲ)


  1. Drain out the water completely from the soaked dal and pulse a couple of more times.
  2. The dal should only be coarsely ground and it should NOT become a paste.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together, except the oil.
  4. At this point you can adjust the taste according to your preference.
  5. Heat oil in deep fry  pan.
  6. Meanwhile, take small dumplings out of the dal mixture and flatten them in between your palms.
  7. Drop the vada into the hot oil and deep fry it in  medium flame until it done.
  8. Once done, remove from oil and drain into paper towels.
  9. Serve hot with coconut chutney or ketchup or just as is and enjoy!


  1. If the heat is too high, the outer portions get cooked faster than the inner, and you’ll end up with either burnt vadas or semi-cooked vadas.
