How many of us make the urad dal Vada at home? Most of the families, as I have noticed buy them at hotels, restaurants or even street stalls. Not that there is anything wrong with it. But there additions of refined flour in some, bad use of oil in some, preservatives in some and the issues for anybody who’s observant will go on..

Making vada in home is much more simpler, easy and the quantity and quality, absolutely satisfying. My version here is one of the simplest you will ever see, that is not time consuming as many think. They may not be perfect in shape, but definitely delicious.

Ingredients – Makes 24

Urad Dal- 1cup

Green chillies- 2

Onions-1 large

curry leaves and coriander as required

Salt for taste

Oil for frying

Method

  1. Wash and Soak the lentils for at least one hour
  2. Load the soaked lentils in a blender jar along with the green chillies -(Trust me, this will make the kids and sometimes adults also who are so picky and finding the chopped chillies while eating unpleasant so very happy… ) and grind it in your mixie or food processor. Note: Yes, no grinder required, but you still get the same fluffy vada. Just add water by little as you grind, few drops at a time. Below is the consistency you are looking for..
