Cooking time: less than 15 minutes

Serves: 15 vadas


1 cup = 300 ml

1 tbsp = 15 ml

1 tsp = 5 ml

  • Urad dal – 1 cup 
  • Water for soaking urad dal – 2 ½ cup 
  • Water for grinding – (3-4) tbsp
  • Green chillies – 2 (medium size)
  • Hing powder (asafoetida)  – ¼ tsp
  • Ginger – 1 ½ inch
  • Coriander leaves – few
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Rice flour – 1 ½ tbsp
  • Salt – required
  • Oil – for deep frying


  1. Soak the urad dal (rinsed) in water ( 2 ½ cup) for 4 hours.
  2. Drain the excess water from the soaked urad dal and grind it to a thick paste with green chillies and ginger (Note: Add water little by little while grinding. Give frequent intervals while grinding. Totally added 3-4 tbsp of water. It is better to sprinkle water than pouring water over it directly (while grinding in a mixie))
  3. The ground paste should be smooth and thick (For checking the consistency of the paste, take a spoon of the paste and try to drop it. The paste should not drop from the spoon easily).
  4. Mix the paste well for 7 minutes continuously (until it becomes fluffy).
  5. Add the required salt, coriander leaves, curry leaves, hing powder and rice flour to it and mix it well.
  6. Prepare a ball with the mixture using wet hand (wet hands with water).
  7. Flatten the ball and make a hole at the centre.
  8. Drop it the hot oil and deep fry until it turns slightly golden brown at simmer. Serve hot.
