Vadai is my favorite evening snacks..These medu vadai is so crispy on the outside but wicked fluffy in the center…Dipping this in chutney and sambar is heavenly..I love it with hot idli, sambar,c hutney..We make this combo often mainly during Sundays..
We often make this at home and if there is any special occasion in our house, then this is the one of which occupies the table..Everyone think that this is complicated , but I can tell you that it is so easy peasy..The trick in this is you should grind the urad dal mixture till it is fluffy and smooth, but add very less water so that you will be able to shape it properly.
Hope you like it and let me know what you think.
Whole Urad Dal / Vellai Ulundu – 250 gms
Rice ( uncooked ) – 3 tblspn
Onion – 1 finely chopped
Green Chilli – 3 finely chopped
Ginger – 2 tblspn finely chopped
Curry leaves – 1 handful finely chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Soak Urad dal and rice together for 4 hours. Now drain it and grind in a blender to a very smooth paste. Add little water as needed to make a smooth paste. Tranfer this to a mixing bowl and set aside.
Now add onions, green chilli, ginger, curry leaves in this and mix well.
Take a small portion out of this and flatten it with your hands. Make a small hole in the center and drop in hot oil. You can also use a plastic sheet to make this (refer picture)
Fry this till golden brown and drain in a paper towel.
Serve with chutney and sambar.
