  • 2 cup - white Rice (basmati)
  • 1/2 cup - coconut, grated
  • Oil - for deep frying
  • Salt to taste
  • How to Make Coconut Vada:

    1. Soak rice in water overnight or 6 to 8 hours.
    2. 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.
    3. Make small balls of the paste.
    4. 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.
    5. Deep fry it in oil in a kadai. Turn it upside down and fry till it is light brown in colour.
    6. Kai vada goes very well with coconut chutney or coriander chutney.
