For this week of BM#17 , i have chosen the the theme of "Deep Fried Fritters" and starting off with this vadai. I had bookmarked this recipe from Tickling Palates and i must say it tastes very delicious.
Blackgram dhal 1/4 cup
Red gram dhal 1/4 cup
Bengal gram dhal 1/4 cup
Raw rice 2 tbsp
Sweetcorn 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Soak all the dhal's and the raw rice together in enough water for 1 hour
Drain the water completely and transfer this to a mixture.
Add the sweet corn to this mixture with the red chillies and salt
Grind the mixture very coarsely(Do not add extra water)
Now add finely chopped onions to this and mix well.
Heat a kadai with oil and when it is sufficiently hot, reduce the flame.
Make small balls from this ground mixture, flatten a Little like patties and deep fry them till they turm golden brown in colour.
Fry in batches of 3-4 vadai and transfer them to a plate lined with an absorbent paper to take out that extra oil
Serve hot with a chutney of your choice
