Mix all the flours in a bowl and warm the flours in a kadai for 1-2 mins. After it cools down, add salt. Add hot oil/Melted ghee to the flour and mix well. Now add cut onions,green chilies, ginger paste,curry leaves, cashews and mix well. Leave the mixture for 10-15 mins. The water in the onions will leave some water and make the dough soft. Sprinkle water and divide the dough into small equal balls and flatten it on a plastic sheet with a drop of oil or flatten it with your hands.
Heat oil in a kadai. Drop the flattened balls into the oil and fry on medium heat. Turn over and fry until it turns golden color on both sides. It takes 8-10mins for each batch of the vada to be done. It will be crisp on the outside and soft inside.

Serve hot with coconut chutney and enjoy with afternoon tea or coffee.
