How to make Vada Curry

  1. Soak for 3 hours, channa dal with red chillies and grind to a coarse paste without adding much water, transfer to a bowl, add salt 1/2 tsp.
  2. Rub oil in idli moudls and make into small vada shaped and steam for 10 minutes or until done. Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, fry the cloves, cinnamon sticks, add onions, curry leaves, green chillies and saute well.
  4. Add tomatoes, turmeric powder, salt and cook till it softens. Add 2 cups of water, sambar powder and bring to a boil.
  5. Crumble the vadas and add to the gravy, cover and cook in medium heat for another 3 – 4 minutes or until the gravy thickens turn off the flame. Add fresh coriander and serve hot with set dosa and idli.

My Tip:

Do not add more water to the batter while grinding the dal, just keep scrapping the sides of the mixer and add a teaspoon of water and grind it until smooth.
