Most South Indians consider breakfast incomplete without Medu Vada. Whether they have idli, dosa, pongal or upma, they like to add a crispy, tasty and protein-rich urad dal vada to the platter. In fact, when you have breakfast in a South Indian restaurant, even in the remote villages, you will be fascinated to see the waiter reel out the list of breakfast combos, almost all of them featuring vada! Serving them fresh with sambhar and coconut chutney however is doubly delightful.

Hi Mam I tried this recipe but the batter leaves water once I add the salt after grinding . Then it is highly difficult to shape the vadas. Kindly guide.

   At step 2 the amount of water you add while grinding needs to be monitored very carefully. Add just enough water to make a batter of dropping consistency like bhajia and not pouring consistency like dosa. This would make shaping the vadas easier. Do try it and share your feedback with us.
