Vadai – The Recipe

Ok as I have said before, I will post the Vadai recipe once I have translated it to English.

So here it is 🙂



150g Gram Urad Dhall (skin peeled already) – soak for 2-3 hours

450g plain flour

1 big onion diced

1-2 stalk of curry leaves (sliced)

1 stalk of coriander leaves (sliced)

1 tbsp yeast

½ tsp bicarbonate soda

200g prawns (optional)

Salt to taste

3 green chillies diced small and thinly

1 cm ginger(blended)

1 tsp cumin seeds


Blend the urad dhall with some water. Then add in the cumin seeds and ginger and blend again.

Pour the mixture into a container and add the yeast and bicarbonate soda. Mix well.

Then add all other ingredients (except for the prawns). Stir well. Then bit by bit add the plain flour.

Stir well make sure the mixture not to thick and not too runny and and leave to rise for 2-3 hrs .

The mixture will be slightly soft. Wet your palm with water, take some of the mixture and form a donut shape.

Top with prawn and deep fry.
