Uzhunnu Vada / Black gram fritters

Hot uzhunnu vada with coconut chutney is a delicious combo.So, let’s make some…


Whole urad dal without skin – 11/2 cups

Ginger – a small piece

Greenchilly – 2 no.s

Peppercorns – 1 tbsp. / to taste

Salt – 11/2 – 13/4 tsp

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Oil to deep fry


Soak the urad dal for 7-8 hours.(I soaked it overnight).

Grind it with ginger, greenchilly, salt and baking powder adding 30-50 ml. water(/that just enough to grind it to a very fine smooth paste.).

The ground paste

Heat oil till steaming hot.

Apply little water on your hands.Take a little ground paste and make a hole in the center to shape it like vadas.

Carefully slide it into the hot oil and deep fry on very low heat till golden brown on both sides.


Refrigerate the batter for a couple of hours to get very crisp vadas.
