After a long time it rained here and this was this seasons first heavy rain. What's better than a plate full of hot vada with ghuguni and a hot cup of tea / coffee.
- Urad Dal : 1 cup
- Onion: 1 medium thinly siced
- Green Chilli: 2-3 finely chopped
- Ginger: 1/2 inch finely chopped
- Salt: 1tbsp
- Suji: 1/4 cup
- Oil for deep frying
Soak the dal in water for 4-6 hrs.
Drain and grind the dal into a smooth paste using little water.
Don't use lot of water else the mix would be very runny.
Add the sliced onion, chopped green chilli, ginger, suji and salt to the paste.
With a spoon mix it nicely in circular motion.
This way the batter would become fluffy.
Heat oil in a kadhai.
Take some oil in palm, take small balls of dough in hand, flatten it little bit and with a small hole in the center add the vadas one by one .
Fry till golden all around.
Technically this should give you perfect donut shaped vadas but in my case they never turn out that perfect.
So you don't have to kill your self trying to give it a perfect donut shape.
You can simply drop a tbsp of batter into oil and make equally delicious vadas.
In south its served with sambar and chutney. We Oriya enjoy our vadas with ghugnuni.
Make these delicious vadas as you like it.
Till then Happy Blogging
