Medu Vada (Urad Daal Vada)

  • Skinless Urad Daal ( Skinless Blackgram Daal): 1 Cup
  • Finely Chopped Onion: 1/2 Cup
  • Finely Chopped Coriander: 1 tbsp
  • Finely Chopped Curry Leaves: 1 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
  • Shredded Fresh Coconut: 2 tbsp
  • Grated Ginger to Taste
  • Green Chillies to Taste
  • Salt to Taste
  • Oil to Fry
  • Wash urad daal 2-3 times and soak in enough water for 5-6 hours.
  • Grind daal to a smooth paste for long time with very very little water so that batter becomes very fluffy.
  • Then add remaining ingredients to the batter and mix well. If you make vadas immediately then they will not become very oily.
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • For making vadas, wet your hand and take small portion of batter. Make a small hole at the center of the batter with a thumb then slowly put in a oil. Add 2-3 vadas in a kadai at a time.
  • On medium heat deep fry these vadas from both sides till they become golden brown.
  • Remove these vadas and keep them on paper towel.
  • Follow this procedure for remaining batter.
  • Serve these hot vadas with any chutney, ketchup or sambar.
