Preparation

  • Combine urad dal, raw rice and chana dal. Wash throughly for 2-3 times and soak for 5-6 hours. Using a colander strain all the water from the dal and grind it to paste by just sprinkling drops of water if needed.
  • In a bowl mix chopped onions, green chillies, jeera, curry leaves and salt. Mix well by adding above ground paste.
  • Pour enough oil in a kadai or heavy bottom cooking vessel for deep frying. Slowly heat up the oil, but not too hot.
  • Wet your hands with oil or water and take a lemon sized ball from the batter and flatten it on a greased plastic sheet or plantain leaf to form a circle, put a hole on the center with your finger.
  • Slowly and carefully drop it into the hot oil and fry on both the sides on a medium flame, till the vada is nice golden in color.
  • Once the vada's are completely cooked take them out on a kitchen tissue/kitchen towel and repeat the process till the batter is completed.
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney/ peanut chutney/ sambar/ karivepaaku karam podi.
