Ullundu Vada

This is a must have item in all feasts. It is made with a hole in the centre but I am not very good at that so I just drop the batter with a spoon. But whatever the shape, it tastes great and we all love it!

  • 1 cup Urad dal
  • 2 tsp Raw Rice
  • 1 green chilly
  • 1/2" piece ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt (Adjust to taste)
  • 5-6 Curry Leaves
  • Oil to Fry
  1. Soak the Urad dal and Rice together for 1 hr.
  2. Grind the soaked Urad dal and rice along with salt, green chilly, asafoetida and curry leaves to a smooth batter adding very less water. The batter should be thick.
  3. Heat oil in a Wok and when the oil is heated (test the oil by adding a drop of the batter and the drop should sizzle up immediately) drop the batter with the help of a spoon into the oil.
  4. Let it turn a golden brown and then flip the vadas and cook till they turn golden brown on all sides.
  5. Take the Vadas with a slotted spoon and keep them on a paper towel so that the excess oil is absorbed by the paper.
