How to Make Urad Dal Vadai

  • Soak the dal in cold water for 4 to 6 hours. Drain off the water.
  • Grind the dal to a fine paste, adding enough water to facilitate grinding. The paste should be stiff.
  • Mix the rice flour. Except for the frying oil, add remaining ingredients to the paste. Mix well. Heat the oil in a skillet.
  • These vadai should be shaped like a doughnut.
  • Moisten both hands with water.
  • Place 1 tbsp. of butter in the left hand toward the finger tips.
  • Flatten and shape into a centre and slide the vadai into the hot oil.
  • Sometimes it seems easier to transfer it to the moistened right hand before sliding it into the oil.
  • Fry 3 to 4 vadais at a time.
  • Turn over once while frying.
  • Vadais are cooked to golden brown prepared in advance.
  • Drain. Serve hot. Reheat by placing in a warming oven.
