PREPARATION TIME - 4.15 MINUTES | COOKING TIME – 25 MINUTES | SERVING - 15 SERVES
(1 CUP = 240ML)
urad dal - 1 cup
salt - 1 teaspoon
Ice cold water
Oil to spray
pepper corn - ¼ to ½ teaspoon
green chilies - 2 to 3 chopped
onions - 4 tablespoon chopped
curry leaves - 1 sprig chopped
cumin seeds - ½ teaspoon
ginger - 1 teaspoon fine grated
Steps to make batter:
Wash dal several times and soak in lot of water for at least 4 to 5 hrs.
Drain the water completely and transfer the dal to a mixer grinder jar. If you have a wet grinder, you can use it.
Sprinkle 3 tablespoons water. Next add salt and start grinding
Next scrape off the sides and then grind again. Whenever needed sprinkle only as much as 1 ½ tsps. Ice cold water evenly.
Again, continue to grind to a coarse thick batter. Ensure your grinder does not become hot.
Sprinkle water. Grind again till the batter looks fluffy and white.
Transfer this to a bowl. Aerate the batter by beating it with your hand in a clockwise direction for 30 to 60 seconds.
Test the batter if it is aerated well. Drop a small batter ball in bowl full of water.
The ball has to float meaning it is light. This is needed to get fluffy medu vada.
If the batter doesn't float well, means either the batter is runny or is not aerated well.
If the batter is in right consistency still it is not floating well. Then beat the batter once more.
Add crushed pepper, cumin, ginger, curry leaves, green chillies and onions. Mix everything well.
Steps to make Vada:
Dip your fingers in water or oil to moisten your fingers. Water should not be dripping.
Take small portions of batter. Shape to a ball, slightly flatten with thumb.
Dip the thumb in water, again no dripping water. Make a hole in the center.
