Beetroot Vadai

This recipe I got from Solai's True Chettinad Kitchen. I first tried this with carrot. It also came out well. Here is the recipe with beetroot.

  1. Beetroot - 1/2 cup
  2. Onion - 1/4 cup
  3. Channa dhall - 1/2 cup
  4. Toor dhall - 1/2 cup
  5. Urad dhall - 1/4 cup
  6. Raw rice - 2 tbsp
  7. Red chillies - 2
  8. Green chillies - 1
  9. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  10. Curry leaves - few
  11. Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Oil - to deep fry
Soak the ingredients 3,4,5,6,7 & 8 for half an hour. Shred beetroot nicely and keep it aside. Chop onions finely. After half an hour, grind the soaked ingredients coarsely without adding much water. Mix the shredded beetroot and onion, curryleaves, fennel seeds, salt, asafoetida powder and mix every thing well. Pre heat oil in a pan, make small vadas from the mixture and deep fry it until it becomes golden brown. Serve it hot with chutney.

Sounds just right stuff for the monsoon season. Will definitely try it out. Most of the veg fried items tastes better and crispier with a pinch of soda added to it.

Vid, this will taste equally good with finely shredded cabbage (just steam it for few seconds before using). Try this.My friend Vimala had taught me this with cabbage.

But, now I am going to try it out with carrot and beetroot.

Vidhya said...
