When I was travelling in South India with my husband, one of my favourite breakfasts was mehdu vadas – savoury ring doughnuts made from urad dhal, spiced simply with green chillies and ginger. At home I often crave these, forgetting that the urad dhal needs soaking for a few hours. So instead I make this very distantly related version using tinned, cooked black-eyed beans. They are the perfect vessel for scooping up chutneys.
