Medhu vadai Ingredients
1 cup urad dal
1 inch chopped ginger
1 cup chopped onion (I used small onions)
3 green chilli
1/8 tsp Asafoetida
finely chopped carrot
While grinding mixie, certain things you need to consider for perfect vadais.
a)Good quality urad dal for more quantity of vadai.
b)After soaking urad dal for 2-3 hours, I refrigerate for an hour. This gives fluffy batter, more volume and easy to shape too.
c)Never grind the batter for long time at once, grind few seconds - stop, grind again. Open the lid and add water little by little when needed.
d)Use ice cold water.
e)I added roughly 1/2 cup water for 1 cup good quality urad dal. I got around 26 medium sized vadas.
f)I grind green chilli, ginger, urad dal without water first, then add water little by little and grind.
g)Never add salt while grinding. Also dont grind for too long, your batter will become pasty and cannot shape.
