Rm#2 : Day 18 Medhu Vadas

Medhu Vada a very popular south indian dish. A dish which is a favourite of all indians. My neighbour also likes our pakodas, medhu vadas etc. She calls medhu vadas as savoury dough nuts. It is a very favourite dish of my husband and whenever there is an occassion, I have to make them.

Ingredients
Urad dal - 1 cup
Rice - 1 tb.sp
green chillies - 3 to 4
ginger - 1 inch (chopped)
onions - 1 big (chopped finely)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Method
Soak the urad dal and rice for about 1 hour. Strain the water and grind them in a grinder or in a mixie. Add the green chillies and ginger while grinding itself. Do not add water while grinding. Remove to the batter to a bowl. Add the onions and salt and mix well. Wet your hands and roll little batter in your palm like a ball. It should not stick to ur hands and should roll in your palms. This is the consistency of the batter. Heat oil in a kadai. Shape the batter in the form a dough nut using your palm and finger. I prefer to do it with the help of plastic sheet. The batter does not stick to a wet plastic sheet. Deep fry the vadais till they become golden brown. The heat should not be too hot nor should it be very less hot. Maintain the heat at a medium temperature throughout the process. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
