Ugadi Recipes contd... Minapappu Vada/ Urad Dal Fritters

Minapappu Vada/ Urad Dal Fritters
I made these Urad Dal Fritters also called Minapa Vadas in the evening on Ugadi day. These are bascially very simple vadas but, for a change I added chopped onions, green chillies, ginger, coriander and little jeera. So here's how to make them.

Serves 2-3
Cooking and Preparation Time 20-30 mins

Ingredients :

Urad Dal - 1 cup soaked for 6-8 hrs, then grinded without adding lot of water into a smooth paste
Red Onion - chopped 1 small
Green chillies - 2 chopped
Coriander - 1/2 cup chopped
Ginger - 1/2 inch chopped
Jeera - 1/4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Enough Oil fry deep frying
Minapappu Vada/ Urad Dal Fritters
Method :
  1. After grinding Urad dal / Minapappu add all the ingredients mentioned above except oil meant for frying.
  2. Then mix everything well and try to beat the paste with your hand to aerate it. Doing this you will get nice fluffy and soft vadas.
  3. On a aluminium foil put a golf ball sized paste, press it and make a hole in the middle. You can alternatively also press the ball in your hand by making hole in center or which ever way you are convinient with.
  4. Slowly remove it with your hand and drop into hot oil and fry it till it is almost red.
  5. Serve hot with your favorite chutney.
