  • 1/2 cup grated coconut (fresh or dry)
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

How to Make Carrot vadas

  • Add all the ingredients (except the oil) in a bowl and mix together to make a thick dough using a very little water. Keep aside.
  • Pour oil in a deep skillet and heat. When it becomes hot, take small batches of the dough, shape into a small circle and drop carefully into the hot oil.
  • When they become cooked and change colour, remove from the hot oil and place on a plate covered with paper towel.
  • Let them cool for some time before you serve.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining dough/batter.
