Medu Vada

Medu Vada, is a south indian tifin recipe (Breakfast Recipe). Its soft fluffy and flavorful fried snack. This goes great at breakfast time or tea time. This medu vada goes great with Alam Pachadi i.e posted on my blog.


1 Cup Soaked Udad Dal
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Chopped Ginger
1 tbsp Green Chili Chopped
1 Medium Onion Chopped
1 tbsp Chopped Curry Leaves
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
Water as Required
1 tbsp Cilantro Chopped
Oil to Deep Fry


1)  Soak udad dal for atleast 3-4 hours or overnight for best results. Then put it in the blender and blend the same to make fine paste. Use least amount of water just enough to grind dal.

2) The best trick to make the vada's fluffy is whisk the batter with hands for at least 10-15 minutes. This is to fill the batter with air. To check whether the batter is ready, take a bowl with water and drop a batter in water. If the batter drop starts floating over water then the batter is ready to make vada's.

3) Add in green chili, onions, coriander, curry leaves, cumin seeds, ginger, salt and mix well.

4) Preheat oil to fry vada's. Take some water in a bowl and then dip fingers in water and take some batter on your finger tips now with the help of thumb make a well in batter over your fingers and slide the batter in hot oil. Fry vada's in medium low flame to make sure they are cooked through out.

5) Fry them till vada's turn golden brown. Serve with Coconut Chutney or Alam Pachadi (Refer my blog for the same).
