  1. Vada!!

    Enjoy it as a tea time snack or could be in breakfast menu. This south Indian delicacy will leave you lip smacking!



    2 cup Urad dal

    2 finely chopped green chillies

    Few chopped corainder & curry leaves

    1 pich hing

    Crushed black pepper

    ½ Teaspoon chopped Ginger

    2 medium size finely chopped onions

    salt to taste

    Step 1 - 2 cup Urad dal soaked overnight or atleast 6 hours.

    Step 2 - Making the batter - Grind the soaked dal with little salt and water. DO NOT ADD MORE WATER. Ensure the batter should not be runny.This is very important.

    Step 3 - The most important step to get soft vadas is to incorporate air in the batter. Use a whisk or with the help of hand keep mixing the batter for 15 minutes. [this is little tedious but the result would be worth and also it would be exercise for you 🙂 ]

    Step 4 - Add remaining ingredients to the batter.

    Step 5 - Dip your hand in water and take handful of batter, try to make a hole in the centre with your thumb, make sure you make a large hole, so that the hole shape remains. Slowly slip the vadas on hot oil with the help of your thumb. This comes with little practise so keep trying and deep fry them on medium heat.

    Enjoy with ketchup ordip of our choice!!
