2 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 to 1 tsp red chili powder
Pinch of asafoetida
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp hot oil
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste

1) Take thalipith bhajani into a mixing bowl. Add 1 tbsp very hot oil to it. Also add cilantro, red chili powder, salt, asafoetida, and turmeric powder. Mix well.
2) Knead to medium dough by adding warm water. Cover and let the dough rest for 15 minutes. Heat oil for deep frying. Divide the dough into 10 to 12 equal balls.
3) Take a small plastic sheet. Apply little water. Place 1 dough ball on it and pat and make round vada. Poke with finger in center. Deep fry vada over medium high heat until nicely done.

1) While making Thalipith Bhajani, if dals are not properly roasted, vada doesn't become crispy. Also if you don't poke in the center, vada puffed up like Poori and then become soft.
2) You can add 1 tsp sesame seeds, 1/4 tsp Carom seeds, and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds to enhance the flavor.
3) If the vada is breaking after putting in the hot oil, Add 1 tbsp wheat flour into remaining dough. Also add little salt and chili powder to adjust the taste.
