In Chennai hotels, Vada curry is one of the most famous side dish served for idli and set dosa. Generally People says vadakari is made out of left over masala vada / Paruppu vadai.Though I have not tasted it, I have heard much about it from my friends. Sendhil had tasted the actual Madras vadacurry in Saidapet, Chennai when was doing his Engineering in Guindy College.So he had promised me to take there during our next visit to Chennai. But I couldn’t resist trying it in my kitchen even before tasting the original hotel vadacurry.After going through some of the magazines and websites, I finally prepared it. We just loved the vada cooked in tomato masala.Making vadacurry is not so difficult as I thought. I prepared this for dinner as a side dish for idli, dosa.So I dint deep fry the vadas,instead I steamed it along with idli.So its ur choice of making it.As far as I know, vada curry should be thick in texture.But we always want the side dishes a bit watery & juicy .So I added little more water. Please reduce the amount of water and make it thick based on ur liking. Lets see how to make South Indian Vada curry recipe.
|Lentils : |
Lentils contain high levels of proteins, including the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine, and are an essential source of inexpensive protein in many parts of the world for those who adhere to a vegetarian diet or cannot afford meat.Lentils are deficient in two essential amino acids, methionine and cystine. However, sprouted lentils contain sufficient levels of all essential amino acids, including methionine and cystine.
Apart from a high level of proteins, lentils also contain dietary fiber, Folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fiber than green lentils (11% rather than 31%).Health magazine has selected lentils as one of the five healthiest foods.Lentils are often mixed with grains, such as rice, which results in a complete protein dish.
Iron contentLentils are one of the best vegetable sources of iron. This makes them an important part of a vegetarian diet, and useful for preventing iron deficiency. Iron is particularly important for adolescents and pregnant women, whose requirements for it are increased.
