Medu Vada

  • Urad dal - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Ginger - 1 tbsp
  • Onion - 1 big size
  • Curry leaves - 1 spring
  • Hing - 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin - 1/2 tsp
  • Whole pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Green chillies - 4
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying

  • Soak the urad dal for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Grind it by adding very little water now & then, till it becomes fluffy & soft.
  • Now mix all other ingredients & deep fry it on medium flame, till it becomes golden brown in color.

Tips for the recipe - The taste & softness of the vada depends upon how fluffy & soft the batter is. It should be super soft and fluffy. Take a pinch of dough and drop it in a cup of water, then it should float. If you are making big vadas as in the photograph then make hole in the center for the vada to cook evenly. If you are making very small vadas then the hole is not necessary. Wet your hands while shaping vadas. This makes the work easy and gives better shape for vadas.
