    • Cumin powder 1 tea spoon
    • Coriander powder 1 tea spoon
    • Sugar 1/2 tea spoon
    • Oil 1 table spoon
    • Mustard seeds 1 tea spoon
    • Salt to taste
    • Dried methi (fenugreek) leaves for garnish


    Method

    2. Grind onions with a half tea spoon salt in a blender and keep aside.
    3. In a non-stick pan add oil and mustard seeds, fry on low heat till the seeds sputter.

      Using tandoori chicken pieces instead of raw chicken, can add a whole new dimension to the dish.

    Hello

    Love Vadas ?

    I came up with this delicious Vadas recipe for all the Indian and Desi food lovers.

    You can eat Vadas with Coconut Chutney or any chutney of your choice.

    Ingredients

    For Vadas:

    Urad dal 1 cup washed and soaked for 2 hours
    Green chilies 3 finely chopped
    Onion 1 finely chopped
    Salt to taste
    Cumin seeds 1/2 tea spoon
    Oil for frying

    For Chutney:

    Grated coconut 1/2 cup
    Peanuts 1/4th cup
    Green chilies 2
    Tamarind paste 1/2 tea spoon
    Salt to taste

    Method:

    Soak washed Urad Dal for a couple of hours.
    Grind it to a fine thick paste in a high power blender or a stone grinder.
    The paste should be thick.
    Add salt chopped onion, cumin seeds and green chilies and mix thoroughly.
    Heat oil in a wok or karahi.
    Wet your hands with water, carefully shape a Vada on one palm, poke a hole in it with a wet finger and slide it in hot oil, fry the Vadas on low heat until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
    For chutney grind all ingredients together with a little bit of water in a blender and serve with hot Vadas.

    Some tips:

    It is easier to shape Vadas with a simple Vada press you can get at your local south-Indian or Sri Lankan store.
