Medu Vada/Ulundu Vada

March 19, 2016 Motions and Emotions 19 Comments

Medu Vada /Ulundu Vada is a popular South Indian dish which I recently tried in my kitchen. We often order this in a South Indian Restaurant however, I was little worried to try this at home. My co-blogger Chitra (Chitra's Food Book) has well explained the method of preparing it. Now I am confident enough to prepare medu vada at my kitchen anytime.  I modified the recipe little bit and sharing with you.




Medu Vada/Ulundu Vada

Ingredients

For Batter

White round urad dal(Urad Gola) – 1 cup
Water

To mix in the batter

Small onion/ Big onion – 15 nos / 2 nos, chopped
Curry leaves – Few
Green Chilli - chopped, 1 teaspoon
Pepper corns – 1 tsp
Coconut - Chopped, 2 tablespoon
Salt - as needed

Procedure

Wash and soak the urad dal for maximum for 2 hours and drain water completely. Now in the mixer grinder take dal and make coarse paste without adding water. Later add water (1/4 cup) and make a smooth paste. Open the jar , wipe the sides & check the batter. If it is not smooth add little more water and keep continuing the procedure until you get a thick, fluffy and smooth batter. Beat the batter before frying to provide aeration which is an important trick to get crispy,light vadas. Keep the batter covered in refrigerator till use. Before frying add chopped onions, peppercorns, chopped green chilli, coconut and curry leaves. Add salt to taste. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Now take a ladle full of batter on your palm and make a hole in the center using your thumb. Now drop the vada in oil and fry under medium flame till golden brown. Follow the similar process for remaining batter and serve hot with coconut chutney.
