How to Make Coconut Vada

  • Soak rice in water overnight or 6 to 8 hours.
  • Grind rice, grated coconut and salt into a very thick paste (Note- it need not be a fine paste) adding very little water. In case the ground mixture turns out to be thin, heat the mixture in a vessel till you get the mixture of required consistency or add rice powder.
  • Make small balls of the paste.
  • Take a piece of cotton cloth and put the ball in the cotton cloth and cover the paste with the other end of the cloth and press it into a circular shape of around 2 inch diameter.
  • Deep fry it in oil in a kadai. Turn it upside down and fry till it is light brown in colour.
  • Kai vada goes very well with coconut chutney or coriander chutney.
