Medhu Vada

One really popular south indian breakfast item-Uzhundhu vadai or medhu vadai.I have tried a few times before, but this time it was perfect with the hole and crunch and all :) The trick to make it perfect was my friend's tip.And it worked like magic :)

To make 15 small sized vadais, you would need

Urad dal(black beans/Ullutham paruppu) 1 teacup (washed and soaked for 6-8 hours)
Baby/sambar onions 10 nos chopped finely
Cumin seeds 1tsp
Pepper corns 1 tsp
Green chillies 1 chopped finely(or as per your spice level)
Curry leaves chopped finely
Salt to taste
Asoefida a pinch
Oil to deep fry
  • Grind the soaked dal with no water at all( you can add water just a sprinkle or two of it).Use as less water as you can.The thicker the batter the higher the chances of getting the hole in between the vadas!
  • Mix all the ingredients into the batter.

  • Heat the oil to fry, and keep a dish filled with water (you need to wet your fingers),take a bit of the batter and make a hole in between with your thumb and slide it into the oil.Continue with all the batter.
  • Fry the vadas until golden brown.

  • Serve with spicy coconut chutney,sambar and caapi :)
