Medu wada is my all time favourite and if you know that guests are coming in the evening even by afternoon this is something you can try. This time I really managed to get real crisp and nice medu wada with little help from the book.
2 Cup Udid Daal
2 Green Chillies
4 Spoon Coconut Pieces
Salt to taste
- Wash and soak the udid daal for around 5-6 hours.
- Once daal is soaked enough, remove the excess water and grind to fine paste.
- Add Salt, finely chopped green chillies, finely chopped onion and coconut pieces and mix well.
- Heat oil in a pan and fry the wadas on low flame.
Fry the wadas immediately after grinding the daal so that wadas are not oily.
When you put the wada in the hot oil it should float instantly, otherwise add little water to the mixture and loosen the mixture and mix really well.
One can also add little ginger but i prefer non gingery flavour for the wadas.
