Crispy Ulunthu Vadai/ Urad Dal Vada


Ingredients
Urad dal/ Ulunthu paruppu/ Black gram-1cup
Powdered Rava( cream of wheat)-3 tsp
Crushed black pepper-1 tsp
Green chilly chopped-2 nos
Salt to taste
Cooking soda-few pinch

Method
Soak urad dal for 1 hour and grind it into smooth paste without adding water( if required add about 2 to 3 tsp of water while grinding). The ground urad dal batter should be of butter consistency and should not stick to your wet fingers. Add powdered rava, green chilles, pinch of soda bi carbonate and required salt to the urad dal batter and mix well with fingers. Heat enough oil in a kadai to deep fry the vadas. Take a plastic sheet and oil well the sheet. Take lemon sized batter and shape it into ball. Place the ball in the center of the sheet and slightly flatten with the fingers and make a small hole in the center. Carefully remove the flattened batter from the sheet to your fingers and slide it into the hot oil. Be careful while sliding vadas into the oil. You can add upto 5 vadas depending on the size of kadai. Turn the vadas and cook on both side until golden brown and crisp. Once the vadas are done, drain from the oil and place on the paper towel. Serve hot with Coconut Chutney and Hotel Sambar
