MIXED VEGETABLE VADA

Print Friendly and PDF
I googled so many recipes , referred some cookbooks and finally came up with this version. Some have suggested to make this vada with gram flour &  rice flour and some recipes are with urad dal.I felt recipe with urad dal would be better. If u want to make Mixed Veg bonda, then gram flour /besan would be the best option..
VADA COLLAGE

INGREDIENTS
For the batter :
  • White round urad dal – 1/2 cup 
  • Salt -  as needed
  • Water – 2 - 3 tbsp ( upto 1/4 cup)
  • Asafetida / hing – 1/4 tsp
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece
  • Green chilli – 1 no
To mix :
  • Carrot – 2 nos
  • Grated Cabbage – 1/4 cup
  • Potato – 1 no ( Optional)
  • Green chilli – 1 no
  • Small onion – 10 nos
  • Curry leaves -  A few
  • Coriander leaves – A few
METHOD
  • Wash and soak urad dal for 1 hour.
  • Grind all the ingredients given under ‘ the batter’ in a mixie.
  • Chop the carrots , small onions , green chillies very finely.
  • Grate the cabbage. Mix all the veggies to the batter .Check for salt.
  • Heat the oil in a kadai and deep fry vadas in batches.
  • Serve hot !!

NOTE
  • We dont have to worry about the shape of vadas, U’ll get a nice perfect shape.The batter mixed with vegetables would be very thick.
  • Suppose if the batter is watery , add little rice flour to get the proper shape. But this step wont be needed.
