Medu Vada (Uzhunu Vada)

Ingredients :

Urad dal : 250 gms

Onion – 1 cup finely chopped

Coriander leaves – 1 cup finely chopped

Cumin seeds : 1 tsp

Pepper powder : Crushed pepper pods – 1 tsp

Salt : As per taste

Oil to deep fry

Procedure :

  • Urad dal needs to be soaked overnite
  • Was the Urad dal, blend in a mixer till it is a coarse paste. Dont blend for too long. The paste should not become overly smooth.
  • Mix the Urad dal paste/batter with all other ingredients mentioned above in a bowl. Mix well while beating the batter lightly with your fingers to aerate the batter.
  • Check the consistency of the final batter by rolling a bit of batter into your fingers and dropping it into a another bowl full of water. The ball of batter should float in the bowl. This is a sigh that the batter is well aerated. If it is too thick, the batter will sink in the water and the vada will turn out hard .
  • Now make doughnuts out of the batter and deep fry in hot oil till golden brown.
  • Serve hot with chutney and sambar…slurp!
