How to Make

  • For making vadai:
  • Soak dal for 2 hours. Drain grind it coarsely with salt.
  • Mix finely cut onions into the dal paste.
  • Divide the dough into small balls and deep-fry. Keep aside (do not fry till deep brown, remove when it turns golden).
  • Heat 3 tbsps of oil in a pan and fry garlic and onions.
  • When it turns into golden brown in colour, add the ground mixture and fry till oil separates.
  • Mix tomato paste and fry.
  • Pour 3 cups of water with turmeric powder, sugar and salt.
  • When it starts boiling, add the fried vadas in it and let it boil for a few minutes.
  • If the water is not enough add little more, otherwise the vadas will absorb the water and the gravy will too thick.
  • When gravy is ready, remove from fire and garnish with cut coriander leaves.
  • This goes well with appam, dosas and idlis.
