Crispy vadas/Wadas

Crispy vadas/Wadas

Wadas are a staple in South Indian households.
This is something I can eat anytime of the day. I love love wadas. These are awsome
with tomato ketchup or sambhar.Here is the goto recipe I use.


urad dal (white pulses) : 2 and 1/2 cup
Rice flour or rice : 1/2 cup
green chillies : 2 big
Kothmir (corriander leaves) : 3 tbl spoons
salt : 1tsp
zeera powder (cumin powder) : 1/4 tsp
curry leaves (4-5) (optional)


Soak urad dal and rice (if not using already powdered) for
3-4 hours. After this put this in a grinder and grind to a
fine paste. use only very little water. Put green chillies
,salt,kothmir,zeera powder and grind again. Remove this mixture in a bowl and put finely cut
curry leaves(you can also add finely cut green chillies if you like a little spice). This paste is fairly thick.To increase the crispyness add more rice flour(and water to maintain consistancy).

Heat good amount of oil in a pan (kadai). This is for deep frying
vadas. Now scoop the vada batter and fry in the kadai. Fry till light
brown on both sides. Your crispy yummy vadas/wadas are ready!!.
