Gari Gari Uddina Bonda/Crispy Urad dal Vada
My husband made these perfect urad vadas.So thought of including this picture here.
The perfect snack for a cold, rainy day. I remember my hometown Bangalore when you could run down the street on a day like this and buy freshly fried bondas. This memory motivated me to make this snack. I call this uddina bonda as I could not get the shape of vada. But it tastes just like vada and is very crispy.
Ginger-1 tsp grated
Coconut cut into small pieces
Oil to fry
Salt to taste
Soak Urad dal for 2-3 hrs.Wash thoroughly and with little water grind it in a mixie or wet grinder.Add green chillies,pepper corns,ginger,coconut pieces and half a cup of oil(Oil makes it very crispy) to the paste of urad dal.Drop this batter in oil with a spoon and fry till golden brown.
Eat hot with coconut chutney or Tomato sauce
