  • Soak urad dal for 1 hour and grind it into smooth paste without adding water( if required add about 2 to 3 tsp of water while grinding).

  • Heat enough oil in a kadai to deep fry the vadas. Take a plastic sheet and oil well the sheet.
  • Take handful of batter and shape it into ball. Place the ball in the center of the sheet and slightly press with the palm and make a small hole in the center.
  • Carefully remove the batter disc from the sheet to your palm and slide it in the hot oil. Be careful while sliding vadas into the oil. You can add upto 5 vadas depending on the size of kadai.
  • Turn the vadas and cook on both side until golden brown and crisp. Once the vadas are done, drain from the oil and place on the paper towel.
  • Serve hot with Coconut Chutney and Sambar.
