Required Ingredients :
  • Urad Dal - 2 glasses
  • Onion - 1
  • Few coriander leaves
  • Ginger - 10g
  • Green Chilies – 2
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
First take the Urad Dal and wash it well and soak it in water for 6-8 hours. Then wash it well with water and keep it aside. Now wash the ginger a little and put the ginger and green chillies in a mixing jar and add the urad dal in it. Add some salt and grind well. If you are using grinder for to make vada batter do not add water at all. If you are using mixer/mixy add 2-3 spoons of water to it and make the dough/batter soft. Now take the dough and keep it in a bowl, cover it and keep it in the fridge. Those who want Vada Crispy should prepare the batter the day before and keep it in the fridge. One hour before making the batter/vada, take the batter out of the fridge and keep it out. By doing this, the Vada/Garelu will not absorb much of the oil.
Before preparing garelu/vada, one onion should be finely chopped. Add some coriander and onion slices and mix the dough well.
Now light the stove and put a pan in it and heat it with oil on high flame. It should be changed to a medium flame when it gets hot enough, or if vada seems burnt. If you see oil is over heated turn the flame to medium from high flame. But the vada should be cooked on high flame, so that it cooks well from inside as we are putting hole in the middle. If you can use your hand means as shown in the above picture, take some flour/dough and make it thin like this, make a hole in the middle and put it in the oil. Those who are not used to kneading by hand should take a polythene cover (or banana leaf) and grease some oil on it, take some flour/dough, roll it into a ball, put it on the cover or banana leaf, press it gently, make a hole in the middle and put it in oil. Now the color changes to red. After frying one side, turn it and fry the other side. After that very delicious Garelu/Vada is ready.
