Who doesnt like medhu vada's??!!..........with a hot cup pf tea and good company.....sigh! Its one of my favourite evening snacks....
                            Perfect for  entertaining guests....the batter will stay good in the fridge for a few days....

1 cup urad dal/ ulundhu
2 tbsp basmathi rice
2 sticks curry leaves, chopped
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1-2 green chilli, chopped
2tbsp corriander leaves, chopped
oil, for frying

  • Soak the ulundhu and rice for atleast 2 to 3 hours 

  • drain well and blend the rice and ulundhu very well till a smooth paste forms. do not add more than a few drops of water

  • add the curry leaves, onions, chillies and corriander leaves and salt

  • put oil in a frying pan. when the oil is hot mould the batter into vada shapes with a hole in the centre and slip it into the oil.

  • fry till golden brown.
  • enjoy hot with your favourite chutney or sambar

  • we use a bit of basmathi rice to give it that extra crispiness. Its also said to absorb less oil...
