Urad Dal Vada

Urad dal vada, an extremely common yet much loved south indian snack. I planned to make Pongal for breakfast today. Pongal without urad dal vada, its impossible for my hubby. My hubby says pongal tastes divine with these vadas. Ya i agree with him. Here is the delicious vada




  • Urad Dal/ - 2 cups
  • Onion - 1
  • Green Chillies - 2
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Pepper Corns - 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep fry

  • Soak urad dal for 2 to 3 hrs and drain the water completely.
  • Grind the batter to a smooth paste,, don't add water while grinding.
  • Then add onion, green chillies, curry leaves, salt, cumin seeds, peppercorns to it an mix well.
  • Dip your hands in water and take a small ball sized batter and keep it on the palm and pat it to form a circle.
  • Make a hole in the center of the patted batter.
  • Fry the patted batter in oil till golden brown on both sides.
  • Now the vadas are ready to serve, serve hot with coconut chutney.
Tips: After soaking, drain the water and keep in the refrigerator for 1 hour and then grind it, so that u will get the round shape.
