Thanks to Lavanya for sharing with me the above photo... On festival days we don't use onions and garlic , we make plain urad dhal vadai .
Have shared the recipe as to how make urad dhal vadai with onions ...if you are making plain vadai ,except adding chopped onions, rest all are same ...
Ingredients needed :
- Urad dhal - 1 cup
- Green chili
- Black pepper - 4 or 5
- Hing powder
- Curry leaves
- Corriander leaves
- Oil for deep frying
Soak urad dhal for one hour , then drain the water completely. Chop onions , green chili , coriander , curry leaves , ginger finely. In a blender , add the soaked urad dhal and just sprinkle little water and grind it to a smooth paste ...make sure the batter is not so thick nor too watery ...it should be in correct consistency transfer it to the bowl to that add the chopped onions + green chilli + coriander leaves + curry leaves + hing powder + black pepper + salt and mix it well ...
Heat a kadai and add oil for deep frying .. have little water in a small bowl for dipping your hand take small plantain leaf or zip lock bag or some plastic cover and apply little oil to it and dip your hand in water and take a small lemon size ball of dough and flatten it slightly and make a small hole in the middle and slowly transfer it into your palm andslide it in oil deep fry it slowly on both the sides till done make sure the oil is not too hot can deep fry 3 or 4 at same time once done transfer it to the bowl and repeat the same for rest of the dough ..
