How To Make Cilantro Coconut Vada

  • First take some urad dal and soak it for about 3 hours.
  • Remove all the water from the urad dal solution and with the help of a grinder, grind the mixture to form a smooth paste type mixture.
  • Now add some coriander leaves, ginger and coconut to the mixture and mix it properly. Add some salt to mixture just before you start frying vadas.
  • Take a frying pan and heat some oil in it.
  • Now keep some water in bowl by your side. Rub some oil on a plastic sheet and put the ball size vada batter on the sheet. Flat the batter and make a hole in the batter with your finger.
  • Put the vada in the frying pan.
  • Do this for rest of the vadas and fry them on a medium heat till they become golden brown in color.
  • This tasty recipe tastes good when eaten with sambar or coconut chutney.

Some Useful Tips

  • Adding salt to the dough makes the dough watery as a result of which it becomes difficult to prepare balls for vadas. So it’s preferable that you add salt to half the batter first and then add salt to remaining batter.
  • For grating grains and lentils, use a high powdered grinder which can grind these in a smooth powdered form.
