Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 16 Vadas

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-size bowl fine semolina, wheat sooji
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 pinches cooking soda
  • 2 tablespoons coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups yogurt or thick curd
  • 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • oil for deep frying

Instructions:

  • In a mixing bowl, add semolina, chopped onion, chopped ginger, chopped green chilies, cumin seeds, chopped coriander leaves, chopped curry leaves, yogurt, and salt. Mix well. Add some more yogurt if needed. The batter should have thick consistency.
  • Keep it aside for 20 minutes.
  • During resting, semolina absorbs water and becomes thicker. Add some water to adjust the consistency of the batter. For making vadas, it should be neither thin nor too thick.
  • Add cooking soda. Mix well.
  • Heat the oil in a deep bottomed pan for the deep-frying. Take a lemon-sized portion of the batter in wet fingers. Make a flat, round shape with a big hole in the center. Drop it into the hot oil. Make 6-7 such fritters in a batch.
  • Fry them to get golden brown vadas while turning at intervals. Once done, remove and place them on a tissue paper.
  • Repeat the same with the remaining batter. Yummy and crunchy Rava vadas (semolina vadas) are ready!
  • Serve them hot with coconut chutney. Enjoy the taste!
