Garelu | Ulli Garelu | Vada

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to everyone !!!
Garelu | Vada is an andhra dish which is prepared for breakfasts or especially during festivals. Vadas are crispy and crunchy which is in a shape of a donut prepared from the whole black gram lentils. I add onions and green chillies to the prepared batter which is called as Ulli(Onion) Garelu and are served with coconut chutney or sambar.
Cooking Time 1½ - 2 hours
Serves 4-5 Persons

Ingredients:

Urad dal (whole)/Minapappu/Black gram
2 Cups
Onions (finely chopped)
2 Small
Green chillies & 2" Ginger (make paste)
6 - 7
Coriander leaves (chopped)
1 Bunch
Curry Leaves
Few
Salt
To Taste
Oil
For Deep Frying

Process:

  • Soak urad dal in water for 5-6 hours/overnight.
  • Drain the water completly and grind in a mixi/grinder into smooth thick paste by adding only salt. (Dont add any water).
  • Take small portions of dal to grind them into smooth paste (Dont grind the dal at once)
  • Remove the batter into a bowl and add onions, green chillies, ginger, corinder leaves, curry leaves and mix well.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying. The oil should be hot.
  • To make vadas take a greased sheet and wet your both hands with water.
  • Take a lemon sized ball from the batter on to the greased sheet and flatten it into round shape and make a hole in the center.
  • Gently place them into the hot oil. Fry both sides until golden brown color on medium heat.
  • Serve hot with Sambar or Coconut chutney.
