Ulunthu Vadai

I love Ulunthu vadai, DH does not like this snack at all! Sambar vada and Thayir vada both are my all time favourite, but after marriage i've prepared it ONLY a couple of times!

1st time i was using a mixie to grind the dhal, the result was a watery batter!! Kept on adding all purpose flour to get the correct consistency, and somehow managed to make it..Second time was another comedy! Was having some extra urad dhal batter while making the idli batter, and tried making vadas, and they literally drank the oil!! Squeezed out the oil and finished it off! ;) ;)

This is the 3rd attempt..this time also I was not planning to make vada at all! Was grinding the batter for idli, and urad dhal batter was more than enough!! I took some of the batter and refrigerated it. After watching a heart breaking FIFA food ball match, we both were little upset. Hubby dear wanted some snack to change the mood, Successfully I started preparing the vada! :)

Urad dhal batter was still little watery, so added 2 tablespoons of rice flour, 2 green chillies and little onion, curry leaves and coconut, pepper corns and salt.

The oil was getting heated on low heat, I tried to make the vada's on a plastic sheet..Managed to make 2-3 vadas, but after that I lost my patience and just dropped them in oil! ;)

We had it with spicy kara chutney and tea. Besides the shape the taste was so good, and guess what?!! DH started liking Ulunthu vadai! :) Hopefully next time i will make the perfect vadai's!

So ladies,this is not a recipe..just an experience!! Better don't try to follow this recipe! ;) ;)
