How to make Valasdi Wada/Desai Wada

  1. 1. To Begin with the Valsadi Wada recipe,Take a heavy bottom pan and dry roast each of grains-Dals separately on a low to medium heat till they turn light Brown. Keep it aside for cooling.
  2. 2. Grind the mix grains into a coarse powder in a Flour Mill. Store them in an Airtight container for increasing its shelf life.
  3. 3. For making Wada, Take a Cup of roasted flour and add Turmeric,Asafoetida,Salt,ChilliGinger paste and Curd. Consistency of Wada Batter should be thick. Give it a good mix and keep in aside for two hours for flavors to seep in the flour.
  4. 4. Heat Oil in a deep frying Kadhai over medium heat. Once oil is hot add a tbspn of Oil to wada batter and mix it well
  5. 5. Drop a 1/2 tbspn of batter in oil to check the temperature of Oil to fry wadas. If they come up with a light brown color, Oil is ready to fry
  6. 6. Gently place wadas into the hot oil and deep fry them on medium heat till crisp. Fry till golden on both sides.
  7. 7. Fry the remaining batches of wadas in similar way.Transfer the wadas on a plate lined with kitchen towel for removing excess oil
  8. 8. Serve hot Wadas with a Cup of chai

My Tip:

1. Grain-Dal should be ground COARSE to give crispy-bite texture 2. Keep the spice level more prominent to make more it flavorful Best part of these wadas are that they were used as travel food as well because locals eat them even when they are not hot.
