Urad Dal vada is mostly prepared on all auspicious occasions in South India.no one could say no to these vadas.everyone wants to have them.but making urad dal vada is still a dream for few busy people as it involves a lot of work and little skill in preparing the batter.
these vadas are instant.means, no hours of soaking and grinding are required.this would really be helpful for working women and bachelors.For this recipe, you need to rinse the Urad dal/black gram first.they need to be rinsed through a strainer under running water very quickly.this is to prevent them from soaking.later they should be kept under sunlight until completely dry.if you have no sunlight available then you can keep them under a fan.
once the urad dal/black gram becomes dry, grind them into a fine powder.you can prepare 1 to 2 kg of this powder at a time and store in an air-tight container.put some cloves and a bay leaf to prevent them from weevils or bugs.use the powder when required.
preparing the batter is the very important step in this recipe.the batter should be neither too hard nor too runny.i.e it should be soft(to touch) but still hard enough to pat vadas. you need to add the water little by a little while mixing the batter.leave the batter for 1-2 hours in normal weather and overnight in extreme cold weathers.keep the batter in the oven with just the lights ON.do not add onions if you are soaking for a longer time.you can add them just before making vadas.
the batter may become little hard after 1 hour as it is prepared with dry urad dal/black gram powder.so add a little water for proper consistency.mix the batter for once before making vadas.dip your fingers in water before you pat each vada.
after frying the first batch vadas, if you find them hard, you can add very little water to the batter.then the vadas will come out very soft and fluffy inside and crispy outside.you can serve them with coconut&peanut chutney and Sabmbar.you can save some and make Dahi Vadas.try and enjoy this wonderful recipe.Happy cooking….. 🙂
