Punugulu / Vada
Quick trick : I soaked urad dal one day and could not make it, so I drained water from urad dal n kept it in freezer in zip lock. When you want to make them again, just take out from freezer n soak for 5 mins n grind the dal.
Whole urad dal - 1 cup
Pepper - 1 tsp (crushed)
Curry leaves - as per taste (optional)
1.Soak urad dal for 2-3 hrs or overnight and make a fine batter. Add little water like1/4 glass.
2. Whisk batter nicely with fork for 10 mins
3.Now finely chop onion,green chillies,curry leaves,pepper and mix it well to the batter. Add little salt and keep mixing it well.
4.Now heat oil in kadai make punugulu or vada’s
4.Keep the stove flame to low while dropping the vada once they are all in you can increase the flame to medium high. Wait till they turn golden colour on both sides till then keep rolling them to the other side.
5.Serve vada or punugulu with coconut chutney, rasam & sambar.
