Wash the poha twice with water.
Now add some water and soak the poha for 3 minutes.
Drain the water and squeeze out excess moisture from the poha and set a side for five minutes. That five minute resting time will help poha become soft.
Prep the ingredients by finely chopping the onion, green chilly, ginger, coriander leaves and mint leaves.
Now take the poha and gently press it to make it soft.
Add all the above ingredients, corn starch and salt. Mix well and quickly check for seasoning and adjust.
You may need to sprinkle little water or add more corn starch to mould them into vada.
Wash your hands and heat oil for deep frying the vada.
While the oil is getting hot, wet your hands with water and take a small portion of the dough and flatten it slightly by smoothing the edges.
Deep fry the vada in medium flame until light brown.
Serve the crispy and delicious vada with chutney of your choice.
