Medhu Vada


1 cup urad dal
a handful of pearl onions (peeled & finely chopped)
3-4 green chillies
1" piece ginger
a handful of curry leaves
salt to taste

Oil for deep frying


Soak the dal in water & set aside for 2 hrs.

Finely chop ginger, green chillies & curry leaves along with the onions. You can also use shallots or red onions in place of pearl onions.

After soaking the dal for 2 hrs, grind it to a thick paste using as little water as possible.

Add chopped onions, green chillies, ginger, curry leaves & salt to the paste & mix well.

Heat oil in a kadai.

Take one spoonful of the mixture onto ur greased palm. Shape it into a ball & flatten it a little. Make a small hole in the middle.Carefully slide it into the hot oil. Repeat with the rest of the mixture...frying 4-5 vadas at a time on medium heat till both sides are golden brown.
