Wash the black gram well and soak it in water for about 11/2 hrs.
Grind it to a thick paste.
Add salt, peppercorns and asafoetida and mix well.
Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.
Take a small plastic sheet of paper and place a small ball of the paste on it.
Tap it well into a round flat shape and make a small hole in the middle as well.
Drop this vada into the boiling oil and fry, till it turns golden brown.
Once the vadas are made, drop them in plain cold water for a minute.
Meanwhile, grind together grated coconut, green chillies and curry leaves into a thick fine paste.
Mix together the above paste with the curd along with salt.
Add seasoned mustard seeds, dry red chillies and curry leaves into it and mix well.
Remove the vadas from the plain water and drop them in the curd mixture.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
