Chawli is often used in subzis , but rare is a snack using this nutritious bean!
Here is a traditional recipe from Andhra cuisine that uses boiled chawli to make scrumptious vadas. While the original version is deep-fried, this recipe of Alasanda Vada is happily tava-fried so you can relish it without any worries.
Also, since rice flour is unsuitable for diabetics , we have used whole wheat flour for binding instead.
With the crunch of onions and many a tasteful ingredient like coriander, ginger and garlic, this vada sure it a yummy treat for your palate – and a healthful one to boot.
Try other healthy diabetic snacks like Methi Crispies or Adai .
- Combine the chawli and 2 tbsp of water in a mixer and blend to a coarse paste.
- Transfer the paste into a deep bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions.
- Wet your hand and take a portion of the mixture in your hand and shape into a 75 mm. (3”) diameter circle. Make a hole in the centre with your thumb.
- Repeat step 4 to shape 4 more vadas.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) , grease it with ½ tsp of oil. Place 5 vadas on it and cook on a medium flame using ½ tsp of oil till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Repeat steps 4 to 6 to shape and cook 5 more vadas.
- Serve immediately.
