Chettinad Kalkandu Vadai Recipe - Sweet Medhu Vada With Video

Kalkandu vadai
Kalkandu Vadai (Sugar candy vada) is a Chettinad Special Sweet Medhu Vada Recipe made especially for Diwali and Thirukarthigai Deepam festivals. Recently we had a 2 days trip to Karaikudi, Chettinad just to explore its food and other specialties. We relished an elaborate, traditional Chettinad lunch at “The Bangala” and had a pleasant stay at “Chidambara Vilas” heritage hotel. In this trip, I got a chance to taste most of the Chettinad special delicacies like Kandarappam, Vellai paniyaram with kara chutney, Thalicha idiyappam, Kosumalli, Kondakadalai Mandi, Getti kuzhambu, Paruppu urundai kulambu, More kulambu, Milagu kulambu, Payasam, some poriyal , pachadi and kootu varieties. We bought all the Chettinad specialty snacks from Soundaram Aachi stores. I also bought a kg of white raw rice / Maavu arisi and murukku press near Koppudai amman temple street for making Chettinad thenkuzhal by enquiring the staffs in Soundaram aachi kadai. I visited the antique stores to buy some props for blog but I din’t buy anything as I found them too costly and not worthy for its price. Finally I bought 2 Chettinad Cotton sarees as well. Totally it was a memorable one to cherish for years.Soon I will try to make a separate post about our trip in detail with all the pictures. After this trip, I got tempted to try some Chettinad recipes in my kitchen and share with my readers. So I bought “100 Chettinad recipes cookbook “ and started trying them one by one.
Last week Sendhil’s friends visited us. Luckily I came to know that they are from Chettinad . I became very happy and passed this book to her to know the authenticity of the recipes given in the book. Thanks a lot Mrs. Inba Venkatesh. She explained each and every recipe along with few corrections. She told me to try this Kalkandu vada as its one of the most special snacks recipe of Chettinad. So I tried this recipe referring the cookbook and few Youtube videos. Even though its my first attempt, it came out really well. I am very happy with the result. It tasted crispy outside and very soft inside. Its so easy to make too. Lets see how to make Chettinad special Kalkandu vadai with step by step pictures.

Check out my other Chettinad recipes in this LINK.

Kalkandu Vadai Recipe - Sweet Medhu Vada


Kalkandu Vadai Recipe - Sweet Medhu Vada

Kalkandu vadai - Sweet medhu vada made with urad dal and sugar candy.


Cuisine: South Indian
Category: Sweet
Serves: Serves
Prep time: 60 Minutes
Cook time: 10 Minutes
Total time: 70 Minutes


INGREDIENTS

1 cup = 250ml
  • White round Urad dal - 1/2 cup
  • Raw rice - 1 tbsp
  • Sugar candy / Kalkandu - 1/2 cup ( I used diamond kalkandu)
  • Salt - A pinch
  • Cooking oil - to deep fry vada

METHOD


  1. Wash and soak urad dal and rice in a bowl adding water for one hour.
  2. In a mixie jar, grind sugar candy to smooth powder. 
  3. To this powder, add the soaked dal +rice by draining the water completely.
  4. Grind to a smooth paste without adding water.
  5. Add salt to the batter, mix well and keep aside.
  6. Heat oil and make vada. Deep fry both sides till golden.
  7. Remove and enjoy hot !

METHOD - STEP BY STEP PICTURES


  • Wash and soak urad dal and raw rice in a bowl adding enough water. Soak for one hour. 


  • In a big mixie jar, powder the sugar candy/ kakandu smoothly. Alternatively you can use sugar instead of sugar candy. Take the soaked dal+rice and drain the water completely. Add the soaked dal+ rice to mixie jar. Grind to a smooth paste without adding water. Powdered kalkandu helps to grind the dal smooth without water.  So do not add water, just wipe the sides of mixie jar and grind continously to make a smooth batter. 
  • Kalkandu vadai recipe

  • Transfer the batter to a bowl, add salt just before making vada. Mix well with a spoon to prevent batter becoming watery.Keep aside. Add 1/2 cup of water to the mixie jar and grind it to wash the jar. Transfer to another bowl and use this water for dipping your hands while shaping the vada. If you fry the vada later, you can refrigerate the batter till use. 
  • Kalkandu vadai recipe

  • Heat oil in a kadai and when it gets heated , drop a pinch of batter to check the heat of oil. If the batter rises to the top immediately, oil temperature is correct. Now lower the flame to medium and drop the vada. 
  • Dip your fingers in water and take a small portion of batter from one corner of the bowl. Make a ball, flatten it slightly and make a hole in the center. Turn your hand upside down. Drop the vada in oil by slightly tilting your fingers. Make 2 to 3 vada per batch. Cook in medium flame by flipping it whenever needed. Cook till golden brown on both the sides. 
  • Kalkandu vadai recipe

  • Do not cook these vada in high flame because vada turns black quickly because of sugar candy.So cook patiently in low to medium flame. .Remove the vada in a tisue paper and serve hot. You can refrigerate the remaining batter for 2 days and make vada at your will.

  • Kalkandu vadai recipe
    Enjoy ! This vada stays good for 2 to 3 days.

Note

  • If you don't have sugar candy, you can use sugar.
  • Never use water for grinding the batter.
  • Cook in low to medium flame patiently.
  • If the vada absorbs more oil, add 1 to 2 tsp of rice flour to the batter.
  • Do not add salt while grinding the batter. It makes the batter watery.

Try this easy, yummy, sweet urad dal vada / Kalkandu and enjoy !

Actually I had planned to post some Ganesh chathurthi recipes as the festival is around. But then I thought, this is also a variety of kozhukattai which we can make easily and offer Lord Ganesh.  So I prepared this easy paal kolukattai version using milk, coconut milk powder and sugar as Vinayagr chathurthi special recipe. It was tasting great. I had already shared my MIL’s Paal kohukattai recipe with jaggery which is Sendhil’s most favourite recipe.

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Sweets
Serves: 2 persons
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 15 Minutes
Total time: 25 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
  • Store bought rice flour - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1/2 cup + 2-3 tbsp (for dough)
  • Gingely oil – a drop
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Boiled milk – 1/2 cup
  • Coconut milk powder - 1.5 tbsp or thick coconut milk - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom seeds - 1 no (crushed)
  • Saffron threads - few
METHOD

  • In a wide bowl , take the rice flour.Add a pinch of salt ,mix well & set aside.
  • Boil water adding a drop of gingely oil.when the water starts to boil,initially u can see some small bubbles on the bottom and sides of vessel.After few minutes,water will start to roll boil with big bubbles.Switch off the flame as soon as water starts to roll boil with big bubbles.
Paal kozhukattai 1
  • Add the boiled water to the rice flour little by little and mix well.Rice flour may not take all the water.Stop adding water as soon as u get a non-sticky dough.If u feel the dough is dry,add little more hot water.Make sure the dough is not sticky.Knead the dough when it is warm.Make small balls of seedai size by greasing your fingers.Cover it till use.
Paal kozhukattai 2
  • Now boil water in idli pot or in a kadai.Grease the idli plate with oil and spread the balls.If u are using kadai,keep the balls in a small plate.Place a small wide bowl and keep the plate over the bowl.Cover the kadai and cook for 5 – 10 minutes.
Paal kozhukattai 3
  • In the mean time,mix 1.5 tbsp of coconut milk powder in 1/2 cup of boiled n cooled milk without any lumps.To this add sugar, saffron thread and cardamom powder.Stir well.
Paal kozhukattai 4
  • Allow it to boil for 2 minutes in medium flame.Milk will thicken slightly.To this, add the cooked rice balls and boil for few seconds.
  • Remove and serve warm or cold.

Note
  • U can cook the rice balls directly in milk instead of cooking in idli pot.In that case,use 1/2 cup of milk + 1/2 cup of water.Cook till rice balls float on top.Now mix 1 tbsp of coconut milk powder in 1/4 cup of milk and add to the cooked rice balls.Boil for a minute and switch off the flame.Add cardamom powder & few saffron threads. Mix well and serve !
  • I cooked the rice balls in idli plate to ensure proper & easy cooking.Also balls won’t break or dissolve.
  • The consistency of dough is important for getting soft rice balls. No problem even if u make the dough little sticky.U can grease ur hands with oil and make balls.But if u make the dough hard and dry,u will never get soft balls.so please add water carefully.
  • If u don't have coconut milk powder in hand,use 1/2 cup of grated coconut.Grind & take thick coconut milk adding 1/2 cup of water.Add to the milk at the end.Give a boil in low flame & switch off.
