For the rava vada

  1. To make rava vada recipe | instant sooji vada | Indian style semolina vada | easy suji vada, place 1 1/2 cups semolina (rava / sooji) in a deep bowl. Ensure that rava is free of moisture, lumps and debris.

  3. Mix it very well with your hands to get a smooth lump free mixture. 
  4. Add more flavour and texture to the instant sooji vada. First add 1/2 cup finely chopped onions.
  5. Add 2 tbsp grated coconut. Prefer freshly grated coconut for best taste and flavour. 
  6. Add 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania).
  7. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera). These lend a very flavourful touch to the Indian style semolina vada. It not only gives a good mouthfeel, but also aids in digestion. 
  8. Add 1 1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies.
  9. Add 1 tsp finely chopped ginger (adrak).

  12. Mix the mixture very well with your hands once again.
  13. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 minutes. This is for all the flavours to blend well since this recipe has no fermentation.

  16. Wet both your palm and fingers with little water. This is necessary so the mixture doesn’t stick to your palms. Also ensure to wet your fingers and palm while shaping each vada.
  17. Place a portion of the mixture on one palm. 
  18. Flatten the vada slightly.
  19. Make a hole in the centre of the vada with the index finger of other hand.
