I have never got urad dal vada perfectly until i saw my mom making it . Recently when my parents visited me , i told my mom to make vada . We all know grinding the dal in the grinder yields fluffy,more quantity of batter. Though it is true , we cannot use grinder for small quantities.My mom always use mixie to grind the batter.I too use mixie but i add more water, make the batter watery and prepare bondas instead of vada .I asked the correct quantity of water from my mom.For the past two , three times i am getting a good shaped vada..Now i know the knack of making crispy vada even for lesser quantity of dal.. I should also thank my sil for posting a video of how to make vada . My mom taught me some alternate methods to bring the vada shape. I’ve tried to give the step by step pics for making vada in different methods. Try whichever is convenient.. I’ve given some tips to adjust the batter consistency , for correct shape & ingredients for onion vada in the notes section.. As my husband hates onion vada, i always make pepper vada and sometimes vegetable vada. We make pepper vada for all occasions..Even today for saraswathi pooja , i made this vada along with rice payasam and channa dal sundal.Usually this pepper vada looks white in color. As i want my vada to be golden brown , i fried in high flame for few seconds before removing it. So please dont think why ur vada looks white and mine looks brown here ;) Also for onion vada , if the color of onion changes to golden brown , it indicates the vada is cooked properly.
