  • 500g - split Urad Dal with husk
  • Salt
  • Oil to deep fry
  • 1 tsp - cumin/jeera
  • 10 black pepper, crushed roughly if desired
  • How to Make Minapa gaarelu (urad dal vada):

    1. Soak dal for 3 hours, remove husk (not completely),
    2. Drain water completely and prepare a firm coarse paste along with salt.
    3. Add pepper and jeera and mix well.
    4. Make thin vada on a plastic sheet/or a clean wet cloth, put a hole in the centre and deep fry the vada on medium heat till it turns golden brown.
    5. Place them on a paper napkin to remove extra oil, if any (usually this vada does not absorb oil as the dough is a firm coarse paste).
