It is raining again in Chennai and weather is quite cool or rather sometimes cold in the late evenings. To warm up i wanted a hot cup of coffee and something to munch. I remembered this snack which was my father's favorite .My mom used to cook this in a jiffy and was so so delicious.Tried to recreate her vadai!!!
Black gram dhal 1 cup
Rice flour 2 tbsp
Cabbage( cut very finely) 1/2 cup or more
Green chillies 2 (very finely cut)
Coriander( very finely cut) 2 tbsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste
Soak the dhal in water for 45 minutes or more
Cut the cabbage , chillies and coriander very finely
Grind the soaked dhal into a very smooth paste without any water. If need be add very little water, else it will turn out soggy
Now add everything together with the necessary salt
Heat a pan with the oil.
When the oil has heated up well, flatten small balls of this dough in your palm, make a hole at the center and slide each of this in the hot oil, taking care not to splash the hot oil.(Be very careful while frying). Add few at a time
Turn it once after few minutes
When golden brown, remove it and drain it to remove the excess oil
Serve hot with coconut chutney
Thank you MA. Everyone here loved it.
