This South Indian delicacy has become an integral part of Mumbai street food. No dosa stall is complete without piping hot deep-fried vadas. Just ask, and can get them submerged in sambhar. The idli-vada combination is a favourite for breakfast!
- Clean, wash and soak the urad dal in enough water for atleast 2 hours.
- Drain, add the peppercorns, curry leaves and ginger and blend in a mixer to a smooth batter, adding little water.
- Add the green chillies and salt, mix well and keep aside.
- Wet your fingers, take some batter and make a hole in the centre using your thumb.
- Slip the vada gently into the hot oil and deep-fry on a medium flame till it turns golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 7 more medu vadas. Drain on absorbent paper.
- Place 2 vadas on a plate and serve immediately with coconut chutney, green garlic chutney and sambhar.
- Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more plates.
