The crispy uzhunnu vadas which was served along with Masala dosa was a delicacy we enjoyed during our college days. Later away from home, I yearned for it. And on holidays back at home I got the simplest recipe and managed to make it for my friends. Here the recipe.
Urid dal (Uzhunnu parippu) 250 gram
Green chillies chopped 4 nos
Ginger chopped 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil to fry.
Soak urad dal in water for 3-4 hours and drain.
Grind the dal, chillies and ginger together adding a little water using a mixer grinder to a thick paste.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan.
Make lime sized balls from the dough, flatten it round, make a hole in the middle with your finger and deep fry till golden brown.
Serve with coconut chutney or sambar. It is also delicious without any dips.
