200 gms urud dhal
Water to make paste
Salt to taste
Oil to fry


1. Soak urad dhal overnight in water

2. After 12 hrs of soaking in water, make paste with urud dhal. Make sure you add limited amount of water.

Note: if you add too much water, while making the dough, the vada tends to absord too much oil during the frying process. And, oily food is not good for health

3. Add salt of the dough depending on your taste

Vada making process

1. Add oil to deep frying pan and let oil become hot.

2. When oil is hot enough, make flat cakes with dough and drop it into hot oil

3. Let the vada remain in oil and fry until it becomes golden brown

4. remove vada from oil when it is golden brown

Both vada curry recipes are excellent. I shall try it when my mother and sister go outside for shop becasue if they both are at home then they are not give me chance for cook becasue I am a younger child in my family. But surely try this recipe.
