Vazhaipoo Vadai

Here comes the crispiest and yummiest vadai. Vazhaipoo is very healthy veggie.  We can make a variety of dishes using this veggie, from soups to curries.  In this list, i gave a thought to do this vadai.  Though, we usually use all dals in equal proportions to make vadai, to get the crispiest vada i added only channa dal to this. Here it comes!!!

Serving Suggestions: Makes 10 vadas 

Channa Dal - 1/2 cup
Vazhaipoo - 2 cups
Red chilly -3
Hing - little
Salt - To taste
Curry Leaves - few

1.Clean and chop the vazhaipoo finely and put it in buttermilk.
2.Take 1/2 tsp of channa dal and soak it separately in hot water for 20mins.
3.Soak the remaining channa dal in warm water for 1/2 an hour.
4.Grind channa dal soaked in step 3 wit salt,red chilly and hing. Then, add channa dal soaked in step2 coarsely.Sprinkle little water if too dry.  Just whip it once.
5.Drain vazhaipoo, rinse it twice in water and clean it thoroughly.
6.Add chopped curry leaves,vazhaipoo and use your palm to shape it into vadas.
7.Heat oil in a kadai in medium flame and drop the vadas.
8.Fry till golden brown.Drain excess oil using kitchen towel.

 Enjoy with your favorite chutney.
