Ingredients to make Minapa - Miriyala Garelu

  • Minumulu or Pottu minapappu (Whole Urad Dal) - 1 cup
  • Miriyalu (Black Pepper Corns) - 1 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Oil for deep frying

How to make Minapa - Miriyala Garelu

  1. Wash the whole urad dal 2 times with water and soak it for half an hour. After this time period, drain the water and rinse the dal. Now add water to cover the dal and soak it over night.
  2. The next day, drain the water from the dal well and grind it with black peppercorns to form a coarse paste. Add salt to taste and the cumin seeds, mix it well to combine every thing together.
  3. Wet your hands with a little water. Take a golf ball size ball from the dal mixture and shape it into a circle (make thinner circles than the normal vada), next make a hole with your finger in the centre of them.
  4. In the mean while, heat oil in a deep frying pan. Drop this dal circles into the hot oil, keep the flame in low and fry the vadas till they turn golden.
  5. Remove from oil and serve it hot.
