Vegetable Legume Vada(Fritters)

Its a unbelievably Crispy vada that i have every eaten . Usually everone say my Masala vadai is crisp but this one.. it was amazing... guess its because of the skins of the legumes..anyway why dig deep into this... all that matters is taste... its tasty, crispy and healthy too, except for the deep frying part of it :).that too i tried to bake but it was not as crispy or tasty as fried one :)
Here is the recipe... actually before proceeding i have to mention the inspiration to make this vadai, my neighbour ,friend,Madhavi.She had a pooja yesterday and her vada was yummy. She used all dhal and veggi.So i wanted to try that but slightly different so used Whole dhals(Legumes) instead.and the result was superb.
Ok Recipe now...
Chick pea-1/2 cup
Peas-1/2 cup
Rajma-1/2 cup
Green gram(whole)/Moong dhal-1/2 cup
Onion finely chopped-1
Green chilli-5-6(to taste)

Carrot grated-1 cup
Coriander leaves(cilantro) leaves-1/2 cup
Mint(optional.I did not use)-1 tbs chopped
Saunf powdered-1/2 tsp
Salt- to taste
Oil -to fry
1)Soak  the legumes overnight.
2)Grind the legumes and chilli to slightly coarse paste adding very little water(just enough to grind).
3)Add chopped vegetables , crushed garlic, saunf powder, salt,cilantro(coriander leafs)mint(optional), chopped onion to the legume mixture. Mix well.
4)Heat oil in a pan .
5)Make small lemon size balls out of the mixture and flatten them. Fry them in oil.
