Vadai

It is a New Year and time for my favorite recipe. Crispy and Crunchy vadai!!


Ingredients:
Urad dal: 1 cup
Green chillies: 2-3 nos
Asafoetida: 2-3 pinches
Oil: 1-2 cups
Salt to taste

Recipe:
1. Soak urad dal in warm water for 1 hour
2. Grind the urad dal with green chillies, asafoetida and salt (do not add any additional water)
3. Heat oil in a pan
4. Wipe your palm with some water, take a spoon full of the batter and place it in your palm to flatten it. Make a hole in it.
5. Add this to the oil at medium high heat (this ensures the vadai is crisp while getting cooked).



Bon Appetit!

  13. Hi
    that sounds so simple to make. And so it is. I hope I may add something. If you add red chillies instead of green ones, the vadais will definitely turn out crisper while consuming less oil while frying. :)
