  • Wash and soak urud dal for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Drain this and grind it to a smooth paste adding a few tablespoons of water if required.
  • Add ginger,green chilies,shallots,pepper corns,curry leaves and salt to taste to the ground paste and mix well using a spatula.
  • Keep aside for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a wok.Just add a pinch of the dough into hot oil,if this rises to the top immediately then the oil is hot enough to prepare the vadas.
  • Wet your palm with cold water and take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a ball.Slightly flatten it and make a hole in the center using your finger.Slip this into hot oil(over medium flame).cook until it turns golden brown.
  • Serve with coconut chutney

Note:If you are not able to shape the vadas add a few tsp of rice flour to the batter to bring it to the right consistency.
