Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Back with our North Karnataka recipe. This is my favorite snack which you can have either with meals or as a tea time snack. In North Karnataka, it is prepared on every new moon day (Amavasye). I always used to wait for new moon day to eat this. Many other dishes are also prepared on this day. I will try to post those also in future.Coming to the recipe,
Jowar flour - 1 cup
Green Moong gram flour - 1/2 cup (If it is not available, You can skip this)
Gram flour - 1 tbsp
Rice flour - 2 tbsp
(This much quantity will make around 12 to 15 vadas.)
Oil to fry
TO MAKE PASTE
Green chilly - 6 to 8 (according to your taste, use more or less)
Jeera - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Haldi - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 lines
Fresh coriander - handful
Grind all with little water to make coarse paste
Mix all flours and the paste with water to make soft dough. Take care not to make it watery, or else the vadas will not come out. Keep it aside at least for half an hour.
Heat oil in thick bottomed kadai. Take big lime size dough, press on your palm in to round or oval shape. Slowly drop it in hot oil.
Let it fry for 5 seconds, turn it and fry till golden color. Repeat with other vadas also. You can make 3 to 5 vadas and fry at same time.
Serve with curds and peanut chutney powder(click here for recipe) when you are having with meals.
Or for tea time, you can have it with spicy coconut chutney.
Hope all of you enjoy my come back recipe with hot cup of tea and Jowar vadas.
