Thank you friends for all your entries to Cooking with Love Uncle. Below is the roundup. Wish my brother Rakhi and everyone celebrating this festival.
My friend Mrs. Lalitha has sent me Urad Dal Vada recipe
Urid dhal - 1 cup
Raw rice - 1/4 cup
Ginger - 1 small sliced ginger
Green chilli - 4 nos.
Onion - 1(chopped finely optional)
Garlic - 2(optional)
Curry leaves - one leaflet
Soak Urid dhal and raw rice for 45 mins. Wash it with water and drain it for a while. Add ginger, garlic and green chillies and grind it nicely adding very little water in a mixer grinder.
Take the paste out in a bowl. Add some curry leaves and finely chopped onion. Heat refined oil in a kadai. Flatten the paste in a small banana leaf or in a oil greased plate and deep fry in the oil. Take it out when it is golden brown. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
