Hi all,

posting below is a traditional receipe called kara vadai.We make it one day as naivedyam during navarathris.


Boiled rice 1cup
Urad dal 3/4 cup
chana dal 1/2 cup
Toor dal 1/2 cup
green chillies 4
red chillies 4
ginger 1" piece
salt to tast
asofoetida a pinch
curry leaf a bunch
oil for frying.


Soak each of the dal and rice separately for 2-3 hours.First grind rice coarsely.The grind urad dal nicely.Now grind the two dals along with chillies,ginger and curry leaf and asafoetida coarsely.Now mix all together.add salt to taste.heat oil in a pan.now deep fry these kara vadai.
(you can drop the batter in oil using hand or spoon).
you can serve hot kara vadai with nice spicy coconut chutney.It is a big hit in our house.U can serve with sauce also for children.

Hope u all like it.
