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.

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 !

Karthigai Adai Recipe – Milagu Jeeraga Adai For Karthigai Deepam

Karthigai adai recipe
I was not aware of Karthigai deepam adai until my MIL told me. She was telling about a milagu jeeraga adai recipe / Pepper adai using raw rice and urad dal she heard from one of her brahmin friends. Actually milagu jeeraga adai/Pepper cumin adai is not new to me. We usually make it with idli rice or steamed rice. But adai using raw rice and urad dal is something new and interesting to me. After that, when I browsed for Karthigai adai recipe, I found many versions with raw rice, chana dal, toor dal and urad dal just like our orappu adai. Finally I found one authentic recipe from Kaveri’s blog-Palakkad Chamayal. Her recipe was very close to what my MIL told me. So I tried it without any second thought. With the flavor of black urad dal and pepper, cumin, it came out very well with a crispy texture. Sendhil loves pepper based dishes. So he liked this milagu jeeraga adai very much. He told its flavor and taste is very much similar to Anjaneyar Kovil Milagu vadai recipe. One thing you should remember is that this adai has to be served hot immediately to enjoy its best taste else it will turn hard and chewy when cooled down. While one person cook the adai, the other has to eat it. Grated jaggery and butter is the best side dish for this adai. Friends, do try this brahmin special Karthigai adai recipe for this Karthigai deepam festival and enjoy !

Chettinad Paal Kozhukattai Recipe With Jaggery, Coconut Milk

Last year I shared an easy paal kozhukattai recipe with milk, coconut milk and sugar. I know paal kozhukattai is a very popular dessert recipe in Chettinad, Tamil nadu. So I was looking for some authentic recipes to try it. Finally I found it from an YouTube video of Nagu’s Nalabagam. Based on that recipe, I tried it yesterday for my Thursday Guru pooja neivedyam. It was very tasty with the nice flavor of coconut milk, jaggery and moong dal. It is prepared without milk. Still kozhukattai came out very soft. Addition of cooked moong dal makes the paal kozhukattai thick and more flavorful.
Paal kozhukattai with jaggery
I guess there are many variations in this particular recipe. Friends from Chettinad region, do let me know if there is any change in this recipe. I am happy to try again and post it.

Karthigai Pori Recipe – Karthigai Vella Aval Pori–Karthigai Deepam Recipes

Karthigai Pori Recipe
Karthigai deepam festival 2016 is nearing. It falls on 12th December, Monday. Every year on Karthigai Deepam festival day, we make pori urundai, appam, payasam and maa vilakku and offer God. Both MOM & MIL has the same practice.In Tamil nadu, during Karthigai deepam festival, we get a special mixture of aval pori ( Puffed Poha), pottukadalai( fried gram dal), Ellu ( roasted sesame seeds) in small packets. When I was young, I used to buy them from a small Chettiyar shop nearby my house.My mom used to roast them in ghee and add it to the boiled jaggery syrup. It tastes crispy and stays good for weeks together.  But in my MIL’s place, getting readymade aval pori is difficult. So she used to roast the thick poha until puffy and follows the same.Both of them do not make balls with aval pori (aval pori urundai )instead they just mix the roasted aval pori in jaggery syrup and keep it as such. Today, I have followed my MIL’s method and prepared this Karthigai pori using thick poha. In Bangalore, puffed rice( arisi pori in Tamil, Mandakki In Kannada) is mostly available in all the shops whereas puffed poha ( Aval pori) is not easy to get. For people like me, this recipe would be useful. Generally, beginners may feel difficult to make balls from the hot aval pori mixture. Do not worry, this post is specially for you. Here you do not have to shape balls. Its just a mix and serve method. But the only difficulty in this recipe is poha should be roasted patiently in batches. It takes nearly 15 –20 minutes for roasting. But this Karthigai aval pori tastes super crispy than the ready made aval pori you buy from the market. So the time you put in this recipe is worthwhile. Do try this method of making Karthigai pori, I am sure you will be very happy with the results. So lets see how to make Karthigai pori recipe with step by step pictures and a video !

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Sweet
Serves: -
Prep time: 10 Minutes

Total time: 30 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
1 cup - 200ml

METHOD

  • First lets prepare the murukku.For this, sieve besan and rice flour in a wide bowl.
  • Add salt, hot oil and ghee to the flour. Mix well. Then add water little by little and make a dough. I made the dough very sticky as shown in the original recipe. So it was very easy to squeeze.
    Manoharam recipe
    Manoharam recipe
  • Take the murukku press and use a single hole or three holed mould. Grease the press with oil. Fill the dough and set aside.
    Manoharam recipe
  • Now heat oil to deep fry and drop a pinch of dough.If it rises to the top immediately, oil is hot. Now simmer the flame and squeeze the murukku either in a circular manner or as a straight line. Don’t worry about the shape because we are going to break them into pieces. Cook both the sides till bubbles cease. Do not fry in high flame, murukku will turn dark. So fry it patiently. Remove in a paper towel. Deep fry all the batches. Let it cool down completely.
    Manoharam recipe
  • Take the powdered jaggery, sugar and water in a kadai. Mix & melt it. Strain the syrup if needed. Let the syrup roll boil and reaches soft ball consistency. To check this, take some syrup and pour it in a plate with water. Gather the syrup and try to make a soft ball. It is called soft ball consistency. Switch off the flame. Add dry ginger powder and mix well.

  • Now break the cooled murukku into pieces ( make small pieces if you are making balls,else break them roughly) and add them to the jaggery syrup. Mix well. Make sure all murukku pieces are coated with the syrup. Make balls when it becomes warm enough Or Remove in a plate and let it cool. They look cluttered, remove them carefully and keep it in a plate. Serve & enjoy !

Note
  • The consistency of jaggery syrup is more important.It should be in soft ball consistency or even slight hard ball is fine else the syrup won’t coat well.
  • Dry ginger powder adds a nice flavor. It aids digestion too. So don’t skip it.
  • You can use soft butter instead of ghee.

Try this yummy, addictive Manoharam snack at home and enjoy !
