Here is a crunchy vada recipe to use as evening snack. It can be served with chutney or sambar. This is my grand mothers recipe and I thought to share it in my blog.
½ cup raw rice
½ cup Idli rice
¼ cup urad dal
3 green chillies finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
1piece of chopped ginger
1 tsp crushed black pepper
Few curry leaves or coriander leaves chopped
1 tsp cumin seed
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Wash the dal and rice several times and soak for 2 to 3 hours.
Grind the soaked dal and rice to a coarse and thick batter with little water.
Add chopped green chillies, onion, ginger, crushed black pepper, cumin seeds, curry leaves and salt. Mix it well.
Heat the oil in a frying pan in medium flame.
Wet your palms and take a lemon size batter and make a hole in the center and slide it into the hot oil.
Fry on both sides in medium flame till it becomes golden brown in colour.
Transfer the vada on a kitchen tissue to remove excess oil.
Serve the rice vada immediately with chutney or sambar.
