Uzhunnu Vada / Medhu Vada / Lentil Dumplings

Ingredients to make Uzhunnu Vada / Medhu Vada / Lentil Dumplings

  • 11/2 cups of uzhunnu/urad dal/lentil
  • 1-2 chopped green chilly
  • 2 tbsp of finely chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp of finely chopped Ginger
  • 3-4 tbsp of rice flour
  • Water as required
  • Oil for deep fry
  • Curry leaves
  • Salt to taste

How to make Uzhunnu Vada / Medhu Vada / Lentil Dumplings

  1. Wash and soak the urad dal for about 4-5 hrs. Drain out excess water and grind it in a mixer to form a fine paste. Use just enough water to grind the dal.
  2. Remove it into a bowl and add rice flour, ginger, onion, curry leaves, green chilly and salt and give it a mix. The mixture should be of the consistency that you should be able to form smooth, soft and loose balls out of it.
  3. In a deep bottom pan, heat the oil. Once hot, maintain the heat in between medium and high. Wet your palms and grab a handfull of the mixture and form a smooth ball. Press it gently between your palms to flatten them.
  4. Dip your pointer finger in water and poke it in the center of it. Drop it into the oil. Once, the vada gets golden brown in colour on one side, flip it.
  5. Drain out excess oil and remove it onto plate lined with paper towel. Serve it with coconut chutney. Makes about 9-10 vadas.
My Tip: Adding the rice flour to the mixture helps make the vada crispy. You could fry the vadas for a little longer to get a darker texture. I like it this way and hence didn't let them fry longer. If you prefer, you could add whole pepper as well. I just ignored it. I simply didn't want the peppers interrupting me while I am enjoying my vadas :).
