Ingredients

Urad Dal
1 Cup
Green Chilli
1-2
Red Chilli
4-5
Asafoetida
1 Pinch
Salt
to taste
Black pepper balls(optional)
1 Teaspoon

Steps

  1. Soak urad dal in water for 4-5 hours.
  2. Drain the water off and grind urad dal, green chillies, red chillies, asafoetida and salt together in a grinder. It is advised not to add water during the grinding process and the final mixture should be fine and thick.
  3. Once the mixture is ready, add curry leaves to it. You may add pepper balls as well(optional)
  4. Prepare balls with the paste. Take the balls and flatten them on a plastic sheet(milk cover is commonly used)with holes in the centre.
  5. The hole is not mandatory. But if the vada is big in size, the hole aids faster and even cooking.
  6. Deep fry in oil till both sides till both sides turn golden brown in color. Drain the oil with a ladle with holes and serve hot with coconut chutney.
