Polla vadai (rice flour vadai)

This is a snack item, which my patti used to make and the side dish for this is a cup of coffee. We usually dip this vadai in coffee and eat it. It will be really good to eat it with coffee.

  1. Channa dhall - 1/4 cup
  2. toor dhall - 1/2 cup
  3. urad dhall - 1/4 cup
  4. Rice flour - 1 cup
  5. Red chillies - 2
  6. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  7. curry leaves - few
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil - to deep fry
Soak three dhall in water for half an hour to one hour adding red chillies to it. After an hour, grind it into a very fine paste adding red chillies, curry leaves and salt. Now add rice flour and asafoetida powder and mix it well. Add water to adjust the consistency. Make small patties out of the batter, deep fry it and enjoy. Fry it one by one in order to get it in better form.

This recipe sounds good. I never tried vadai because it doesn´t exist here where I live, but I´d love to. I like trying new things.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I answered your comment there but decided to make you a visit too.
Best Regards. Mizé.
