Paruppu vadai(Baked)

I know..everybody knows how to make vadai. This time I tried to bake them instead of deep frying. Vada's turned out so crunchy..just like deep fried!!..worth to post this recipe in my blog. :)

Split yellow pea(Vadai paruppu/pattaani paruppu)-1cup
Garlic-4 pods
Ginger-1/2inch piece
Fennel Seed-1/2spoon
Chopped Spinach-1/2cup
Chopped Onion-1/2cup
Green Chillies-5(adjust to your taste buds)
Few curry leaves&cilantro leaves

Wash and soak the dhal for 2 hours. Reserve a hand full of dhal and grind the rest with garlic,ginger and fennel seeds.

Add all the ingredients except oil and the reserved dhal with the ground dhal.
Mix everything to gather and make the vada's.

Arrange them on a greased baking sheet,sprinkle some oil and bake @ 350F preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Take them out,flip it over,sprinkle oil and again bake it for another 15 minutes.

Take the tray,give a final flip and oil sprinkle and broil them for 5 more minutes.Crispy vadas are ready to serve.

  9. great idea! thanks for sharing this nice recipe.

  10. Hi Mahi did this vadai last week.Unfortunately this time, my vadai didn't turn out decent like it used to be with your recipes every other time.I knew I added some extra water by mistake while grinding:-(.

    What else can be the reason for them not changing to brown/red color?Only one side had that color.

    But I fried in oil again(no point in going thro' all those baking steps.Ha ha)and finished all vadais.Anyways thanks for sharing the recipe Mahi with perfect measurements because fried ones were absolutely delicious.

  11. Soumya,thanks for trying!

    Vadai colour varaathathukku reason..Oven heat kammiyaa irunthirukkalaam (or) preheat seytha time kammiya irunthirukkalaam.

    vadai maavai fridge-la konja weram vaichu appuram try pannunga. 15 minutes-ku oru murai vadai-ya thiruppi vaiththu oil drizzle pannungka.
